Friday Fictioneers is a magical place, where writers spin stories from a photo. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields manages to keep us in line and provide inspiration each week, as our talented leader. Visit her blog Addicted To Purple to read more stories, or join in. This week’s photo comes from “The Reclining Gentleman.”
“Don’t worry, baby, everything’s ok.”
The dusky night whizzes by his speeding car.
“There’s evil in this world… but the Lord guides me.”
He glances at her sleepy face in the mirror and smiles.
“No more tears.”
He pulls the car over to the center of the bridge, opens the car door and unbuckles the car seat. His four year-old daughter wraps her tiny arms around his neck.
“You’re safe, baby. Jesus saves.”
He kisses her silky cheek and drops her over the railing, into the frigid water ninety feet below, then turns back around–– a deer in the headlights.
(100 words, exactly) Most days the news is too much to bear. Some days, a photo reminds me of that. As always, I welcome your honest, constructive feedback. Please leave a comment.
