Drabble Challenge #17

Prompt: quiver

"Dad, I don't want to do this," Jason whispered as his dad helped Mrs. Rudeseal to the comfortable chair.

"I'd do it if I could, son," Mr. Haldeman apologized. "But He doesn't listen to me anymore. It's you He loves now."

"He scares me, Dad," Jason said as his lower lip quivered.

Mr. Haldeman put his arm around his son as Mrs. Rudeseal stared hopefully at Jason. "He scares me too," Mr. Haldeman admitted, "but we all need Him."

"Now heal Mrs. Rudeseal so she doesn't hurt anymore."

Her lips quivered as Jason placed his fingers on her diseased face.
