It’s a busy time of year, and I missed Friday Fictioneers last week, but I’m back this week with a 100-word story which follows the photo prompt provided by Randy Mazie.
Lydia never saw it coming. She was focused on the chemo and side effects, and carried the hope of health.
John, on the other hand, sought consolation in the arms of another. The day came when he broke the news to Lydia; he couldn’t go on watching her suffer so. He packed his bag and left.
Lydia boarded the windows of her heart and posted a “No Trespassing” sign.
Five years of remission later, a gentleman came into her life and said, “I’m going to sweep you off your feet.” She told him he’d better have a pretty stiff broom.
Now it’s your turn! Hop over to Friday Fictioneers to find out how you can join in this fun writing exercise. Lots of new friends await!
