Cough Syrup

Continuing with Ammani’s 24-hour challenge, today’s word – cough syrup

He started coughing one day, and just didn’t stop. At first they thought it was the cold, damp weather, and by the time they realised it was something serious, he had passed. That was eighty-four years ago. If he were here today, they would have celebrated their ninety-first birthday. Instead she is alone; with only a faded black and white picture, from when they were five, and a bottle of cough syrup, in which he left his smell.
