This is part 5 in a story I’ve returned to from previous Friday Fictioneer prompts. You can find parts one, two, three and four if you click these links. As always, I welcome constructive or positive feedback in the comments section. Each week, I try to read as many stories in the collection as possible, and appreciate those who read mine as well. On Saturdays, I participate in a weekly writing competition. Check out my blog for my story, and IF you like my work, I’d appreciate your vote enormously. It is always a nail biter!
Each week I look forward to Friday Fictioneers. Writers from around the world are brought together by Rochelle Wisoff-Fiels, to create a story from a photo prompt. Each story must have a beginning, middle and end, and writers aspire to a stick to 100 words or less. If you’re interested in joining or would like to read other stories in the collection, please visit Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple.
“And let there be light…” Marjorie laughed at the irony, as she gazed at the calming scenery.
Having chosen the blue door, she’d imagined whimsy and color; but life after death was not what she’d anticipated. None of the loved ones who’d gone before, no watching those she’d left behind, from her perch ‘on high.’ Only solitude.
One moment lapsed into the next– golden days in the places she’d loved, with the abandon to savor them.
Offered the choice of only one companion, she waited in the eternal sunshine for Henry– hoping he would find her.
