Imaginary

via Daily Prompt: Imaginary

There once was a little girl named Neva who had an imaginary friend named Tim. You see, Neva was an only child and she really wanted a brother.  Unfortunately, her parents were not able to have any more children.  Neva and Tim played together every day.  He kept her company when she was lonely.

One day Tim told Neva he was moving away and they couldn’t play anymore.  Neva was mad at Tim for having to leave but she forgave him.  Then one day, her mommy and daddy told her they were moving to a bigger house in the country.  When mommy asked about Tim, Neva said Tim moved away.

Mommy gave her a hug and told her it was okay and that friends sometimes move and that she would make new friends.  When they moved to the new house Neva never saw Tim again but she talked about him sometimes.  When Neva went to school she made new friends and soon Tim was forgotten.
