It’s time to write another piece for Friday Fictioneers! Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts this venture. 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.

Who am I?
The land disappeared into darkness. “Like my life,” I thought, as I struggled to hold back the tears.
I clutched a letter Mother had left me. It told me she wasn’t my mother at all. She had waited until after her death to say this. Her written words explained that she hadn’t known how to break the news or how to cope with any response I might make. I had to deal with this myself.
All sense of identity had been snatched away from me.
Some family secrets should be kept deep in the hearts of those who hold them.
