Her time will come – Friday Fictioneers

One of the great things about Friday Fictioneers is that it directs us to think about things we have done, things we have seen or heard and things we have read. All of these experiences contribute to the content of each story we write.

 If you would like to become a part of Friday Fictioneers, the weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, do use the link to her blog and let the photo prompt challenge you to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction!  It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

Her time will come

Clara huddled under the weeping maple, her tears dropping softly onto its leaves.  She heard Vincent approaching but took care that no sound or movement should lead him to her place of refuge.

 A voice close to her ear startled her.  “I’ll find you,” it hissed.  “And when I do…”

 Their mother called and he rushed to do her bidding.  The blue eyed boy who could do no wrong.

 She longed, in vain, for a brother who would be kind and loving.  She little dreamed that, as the years passed, so much would change.  Fate would intervene.  She would prevail.

    1. Thank you for your response. He obviously resented his sister and she suffered as a result. A very difficult situation. Sadly, their relationship will not improve. Fate will not treat him kindly. She will prosper but the memory of his treatment of her will never fade.

  1. I think our daughter (the elder sibling) still resents her brother (the baby) even though they’re both in their thirties. He longs to have a loving relationship, but she keeps him at arm’s length. My eldest brother wasn’t very loving either.
