Three Things Challenge #816

Hosted by Di at pensitivity101

CHARITY
CURTAIN
PERPLEX

A curtain of confusion veiled her eyes as she watched the scene unfold in front of her. The old man, dressed in a dirty, torn overcoat held out a crooked hand, clad with cut off gloves exposing dirty fingernails, to the little girl in front of him. He was handing her a tissue, clean and white, to dry up her tears, falling as she looked up at the beautiful Christmas tree before her. To see this token of charity, in sort of “typical” reversal was amazing and Betty felt a tear roll down her own cheek. Why she was so perplexed made her heart skip a beat, realizing she didn’t have to have pity for this man who was so charming despite his outward appearance.
