I discovered rochellewisofffields blog yesterday and wrote my 100 word story this morning, then I realised the new challenge had been posted, I wanted to post this anyway even though I missed the deadline!
Elise wanted to leave her husband something special, show him what their love meant. What could she say to a man who had walked his whole life beside her? What would possibly fill the void where her love once lay?
With shaky hands she took the card and wrote, ‘You were always there, part of me, I am with you still, now and forever.’
She carefully wrapped up the garden sculpture she had created to make Philip smile, tucked the card into the ribbon and lay down on their bed. Waiting for him to come and hold her.
Hi, I really did enjoy your take on the prompt! Nicely done and a good read, Penny 🙂
Thank you it was fun to attempt. I like the challenge of flash fiction as I am usually a wordy writer. It took just 3 edits.
Me too. Way to go three edits isn’t bad at all!
Thanks, I wrote my 2nd flash last night – it took 1.5hrs though and had many more edits!
Cool, wishing you luck with that one, I’m guessing you’ll soon be a pro at the editing! 🙂
