In the space and the silence – Friday Fictioneers

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!

In the space and the silence

The mountain beckoned.  Barin watched the sun rise then grasped his staff and set off.  He was seeking his brother who had taken the path around the lowest slopes but had not returned.

As he climbed higher, the weather changed.  Suddenly, through the descending gloom he saw, carved into the rock, a face and a warning hand held high.

 Barin stood staring then turned at the sound of forlorn creaking. Rounding the corner, he saw a hooded body swaying from the lone tree growing out of the rocky soil. 

 All hope left him.  He sank to his knees in despair.
