Reunited Family, by Esperanza Muntaner

 

Every Friday Marta was going to do the weekly shopping, but this time it was different. Marta came home telling her family that the workers were talking about the arrival of a new virus called COVID-19. Quickly they turned on the TV, and the journalist confirmed that there was already the first case in that city, and the infected person was their uncle Marcus, but they had not spoken for six years. They couldn’t stand it anymore, so they called Marcus to ask how he was. From that moment they decided that it was important to leave their anger behind. They called him every day until he got better thanks to the encouragement that his family gave him everyday.
