I stare at the backyard, soaking in the memories. Two orange cones sit by the shed, used to practice Karen’s goalie skills. “Kick it hard, Daddy!”
I make the world swim in shades of blue, my wife’s favorite color. “Oh, look at the dolphin, honey. Karen will love this.”
My baby watched me, imitated me. I gave her love…how was I to know she took more?
The M.E. said “three-times the legal limit.” Her mother glared at me, the accusation terrible…and true.
I close the door, memories threatening to drown me. The latch clicks for the last time.
Friday Fictioneers time again! Every week Rochelle gives us a photo, and every week around 100 writers give their interpretation. The challenge is to create the story using only 100 words (or so).
Head on over to Addicted to Purple and read some great writers. Join in the fun if the picture strikes you!
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Reading and Writing!
