Yes! The weeks roll on and I get older but less wise. And it is that time again-time for Friday Fictioneers. Every Wednesday Madison Woods posts a picture on her blog. Every Friday, writers from around the globe post a 100 word story they wrote based on the picture. It’s a great way to read good stories, and if you’re a writer, it’s also a good way to get your work read.
As always, I welcome constructive criticism.
My story is below the picture:
Not Gonna Move
“Mom heard them coming,” my sister told me years later.
“The bulldozers had already begun,” she added. “They were about to rip out the mulberry tree in front of the mailbox so that’s when Mom did it. She took the chain, looped it twice around her waist and locked herself to the trunk. Gave me the key and told me to throw it in the river.”
“But you didn’t, right?” I asked.
“Nope. A few hours later it was 95 degrees. They wouldn’t give her water. So I caved.”
My sister looked away and lit a cigarette.
