Week five, and I’m feeling great about ending the writing drought. Thanks for all the support and wonderful feedback all y’all! This week’s photo prompt comes from Björn Rudberg, the weekly nudge from our dedicated leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. To join in the fun, check out her blog Addicted to Purple. As always, I appreciate honest, constructive feedback; please leave a comment.
Nina’s childhood was traumatic. Her mother’s death when she was nine, was followed a year later by her father leaving. She lived with her aunt and uncle until college, and then set her own course.
She learned from that childhood to be vigilant. “Life is like chess,” Nina told friends, “you have to be thinking two moves ahead.”
When driving, she calculated what each car would do, and looked three times before crossing; twice wasn’t enough.
I love you–– please say yes! She read the text, and smiled. Reaching for her phone, she never saw the flared lights of the oncoming truck.
*Please don’t engage in distracted driving! Put the phone away, out of sight. It only takes a moment’s distraction! It’s something most of us could work on.
