A Very Special Offer

02/02/2012

For Bluebell Books: Short Story Slam Week 20.

See their special offer and join — A story in 55 words!

*

‘I SING, YOU SMILE’ – written on a cardboard beside him.

I smiled and the passers-by who read it.

“Why are you doing this? You can’t even see them?” I asked the singing blind man on the sidewalk.

“Because I want to be the reason for a smile,” he said.

What a very special offer.

*

When I smiled at them, they scarcely believed it; the light of my face was precious to them. – Job 29:24
