Trifextra #90: Uncertainty

We eat breakfast mechanically, taking only sustenance. Late nights have taken their toll, weighing down our souls.  Our son smiles from the pages of the paper.

The headline reads: “Have you seen me?”

Word Count: 33

Trifextra Time! This weeks prompt: Use 33 words to describe what scares you (or your character). This is my fear, and one I hope I never have to face.

Head on over to Trifecta and check out the other entries, and enter something yourself if the mood strikes you.

Happy reading and writing!
