Don's hand froze over the partially filled out form, a wave of grief swamping him.

Gazing down at the page, his eye went to the first blank he'd filled in: today's date.

It was his mother's birthday.

He'd forgotten; he'd gone the whole day without thinking of her at all.

Don abandoned the form and grabbed his car keys.

Memories called to him like sirens, drawing him back to The Craftsman: home.

Ouch, ouch, ouch!

Poor Donnie.

I like the style you used in this but poor Donnie.

Thanks. I've been ambushed like that so I can imagine it's painful to even just read it.

Sorry!

Into each life, a bit of angst must fall... Only when it's my LJ it tends to be more than a bit. ;-)

Sad and yet lovely. Really liked the different style you used here. Nice touch. Poor Donnie. *pets his S3 hair.

Thanks. I had to make the date older originally since the first draft had a question on recent surgeries. /headdesk/ I ended up pulling it for length, but it did bring in some Fifth Man stuff that distracted from the Margaret cancer, so I'm rather glad it's gone. So we're ignoring Don's own life-threatening ailment for the duration of this fic. :-)

Ouch!! Nice and angsty my dear, and cool idea too with the format.
*hugs*

Poor Don. I'm sure he'll feel guilty for momentarily forgetting.

Yes, Martyr!Don will have to do extra penance this month. /nods/
