"Give daddy a kiss before he gets on his plane"
His large stature bent down to his daughter standing wide-eyed in front of him.
She wined in protest pressing her small hand to his mouth giving it a push making him laugh into the soft skin. He took her hand into his and blew raspberries to her palm listening to her sweet giggle.
A kiss was then pressed through her thin hair as he stood with a quiet I love you shared just between them.
Small eyes followed her father as he walked away towards his plane, his head bowed and shoulders slumped.
