Good Friday evening/Saturday morning everyone! This is my next to last installment of Friday Fictioneers on this blog as I have created a new writing blog (and subscribed to several Friday Fictioneers as well!) Here is my contribution to this week’s Friday Fictioneers. As always thanks Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for your organization and photo prompt which this week is courtesy of Adam Ickes. Thanks Adam!
Walking A Plank
by Jim Kane
Breathing shallow yet rapid breaths as she stood holding her hand she quickly remembered it had been fifteen years since she stood in this very place after a strong storm had wrecked the natural beauty she saw once again before them. Walking had to be willed to the covered deck at the end where familiar laughter rang out.
With each step, the board walk seemed to lengthen in her fogged vision of fear. The tone of laughter began to change as the sun passed behind a cloud from joy to fear and mourning, a maddening laugh that drove her fear outward and back toward the past she refused to leave.
“Mommy? Mommy? Mmmommy? MOMMY!!! Come back!”
