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.
Bring just a little love
The heavy rain had turned the front garden into a sea of mud. The toys had been dumped there overnight. One teddy raising his arm for help.
An acrimonious divorce had recently ended their marriage. It had been such a relief to find a new home for herself and their children. Her ex-husband had said he would drop some belongings round. This was how he had done it.
Her elder daughter slipped an arm around her. “We’ll clean them up for the little ones, Mum.”
She sighed. It would take so much more than water to wash away the heartache.
