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.
I stood alone while he walked away. Frustration washed over me like a restless tide.
He had shown me only care and compassion. I gave him nothing. Why could I not confide in him? Why would I not let him help me find what I had lost?
My faith in others had gone. I dared not trust again.
The distance between us grew and fear stirred in my heart.
I set off. Slowly, at first, and then running. As I drew closer, I called his name. He turned and stood watching. Waiting.
“There’s something I must tell you,” I said.
