Small kick

I felt it, ever so slightly. My friend asked me to put my hand against her belly. And patiently I waited. It was quiet for a while. But all of a sudden, a slight rumble touched the inside of my palm. A small kick, yet so powerful too. Did he feel it too, I wonder.

I’m the first person (other than the mother, of course) to feel this little life’s touch. There’s something special about that.

But I won’t be the last.
