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 written piece of no more than 100 words. 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!

My mother’s face was transformed by a sudden smile. I looked at her in surprise then took her in my arms and held her close.
After a while, I laid her gently back upon the pillow and stood up to look out of the window. The city was brightly lit. In this room, a light had just gone out.
I moved back to sit at the bedside and took my mother’s hand in mine. I had clasped it tightly as we walked together along the pathway towards the end of her life. A gentle walk that took just ninety days.
