The flip side

The grey blue sea matched the sky perfectly. Seagulls soared in front of her, dancing their freedom on the breeze. The sun peered briefly from behind a cloud and she wondered whether little Ava would need the cardigan she’d lain out for her earlier. Then, placing the pages in her hand gently on the grass, a small soft smile spread across her face. The fight was over. This morning promised a whole new beginning for everyone. See you on the flip side, she thought. She took a deep breath, tasted the salty sea air one last time and stepped off.

This week’s prompt is ‘the flip side’. You can read the other entries in the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups at Julia’s Place.
