Here are your two choices for the Tie-Breaker!

Walk to the Park

“Daddy, will you go to the park with me?”

“Of course, son.” He paused and looked at the boy. He almost looked exactly like his memory of him.

“Why are you crying, Daddy?”

He wiped his tears. “I just love you so much.”

They hugged; the boy’s grip was so close to what his son’s had felt like.

“It’s okay Daddy. I love you too.” They held hands and walked down the street.

Buzzzzzz. - Captain, you’re needed on the bridge. They’re here.

He squeezed the boy’s hand lovingly and ended the program, knowing he would be back later.


A Vacant Chair Beside the Hearth

Anna watched him reading a newspaper at the kitchen table with a cup of steaming coffee. She loved how his face contorted into different expressions from one story to the next. She continued watching him as she cleaned house.

Later her neighbor Kathy brought her a casserole.

Anna thanked her, inviting her for tea.

"Isn't my husband handsome?" she said, watching him relax with a book on a chair by the fireplace.

Kathy nodded and smiled.

"I'm glad I spent the insurance money on a remembrance hologram instead of a funeral. Don't you agree?"

Kathy nodded and quietly left.
