Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
A step too far
I took a step onto the wooden bridge that spanned the divide between two countries; a step across the threshold to a new life.
The preparations were complete. Soon two families and friends would come together in celebration.
The roof of the border checkpoint glowed with a rosy hue. I moved forward.
A grey cloud moved across the face of the sun. Suddenly, everything looked less bright, less promising.
Fear sliced through me like the keenest blade. Before long I would be face to face with the stranger who would be my husband; a man whose name I didn’t know.
