Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts Friday Fictioneers. Each week Rochelle 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.
Sometimes it’s better not to know
He suggested meeting at a heritage car show. Somewhere neutral.
It was a memorable experience. As we browsed together around the displays of vintage vehicles, trade stands and autojumble, I tried to get to know the father I hadn’t seen since I was a small child.
I had no idea when or why he’d left or why there was no contact.
He invited me to ask whatever I wanted. When I mentioned my sister, he said she wasn’t his child.
No more questions.
The truth hurts. When you don’t know which parent has told the truth, it hurts even more.
