My third drabble for Challenge 364: Tear at tw100.

Summary: It’s Meriel’s first day at school.

Meriel gripped her daddies’ hands, swinging herself along between them, trying to make them go faster. Blonde hair in pigtails, looking smart in her new school uniform, shoes polished to a shine, she was full of excitement about finally starting school.

Ianto picked up the pace, aware that he’d been dragging his heels, oddly reluctant for his daughter to take this big step. Surreptitiously he wiped away a tear. Their little girl was growing up so fast.
