A step too far – Friday Fictioneers

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.
