It’s time again for the Friday Fictioneers, kindly hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This is a writing challenge which asks that we produce a piece of fiction in 100 words from the photo prompt given. If you’d like to contribute to this challenge, just follow the link through Rochelle’s blog to read the instructions and copy the photo.
Here is this week’s photo . . .
. . . and this is my story:
Abigail gazed across the lawn, a warm breeze rustling the gold-tipped leaves of the tall magnolia and nurturing her memories…
The veranda heaved with folks cooing over her newly-christened brother. Six-year-old Abigail fled to her room, tears streaming as her jealousy soared. Since Ethan’s birth, Daddy had taken his love away.
‘Where are you, Abigail?’ It was Daddy’s voice, down in the hall. He wanted her again.
‘Daddy!’ she cried, lowering her foot to the top stair…
It was a warm September day in 1886 when they buried her in the peaceful little cemetery.
But Abigail liked it better here.
Word Count: 100
