Wednesday exercise: Improvise a story to a photo

In that puddle it was. There, right in front of him. He halted immediately and looked through the window to the perfect world. It was so close! He went down on his knees. Could he see himself there? Yes. There he was. And he looked happy. Of course he was. On that side everything was fine. He leaned closer. Was there a mom in this world too? Then what did she look like? He desperately wanted a peek of what a kind and loving mom looked like!

Suddenly he was yanked away, his mom cursing and calling him names, asking if he was a dog drinking water from puddles on the street. A car drove by, splashing the water. The window was shut.
