Friday Fictioneers: 31st January 2020

Thanks again to Rochelle for hosting the Friday Fictioneers challenge. Our photo this week is provided by Dale Rogerson. Thanks Dale.
The scene was set as the single light began to gently glow.
Silence held itself in check, lest the slightest sound shattered the moment.
Her face was rosy and glowing, the first tear teetering on greying lashes to fall.
The music began, and the stage became alive.
Memories of parks, first love and literally falling at his feet leapt to the forefront of her mind.
She remembered it all, and as he took her hand, so did he.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Lyrical and also sad if I interpret this correctly

    • Thanks Neil. It could be an elderly relative with dementia or just a trip down memory lane. My Mum could remember things from thirty or forty years ago as if they were yesterday, but current stuff, she couldn’t recall at all.

    Loved the sense of memory and a life well lived.

    Such everlasting memories are the best.

    A charming story, with its mix of enduring love, loss and even slapstick humour. Super!

  5. granonine says:

    Aw, what a delightful story, with a dash of sad thrown in. Well done.

    This was beautifully done, Di. Heartwarming as well as heartbreaking.

  7. So touching and true. Great story.

    It feels like touch is the magic ingredient here. The glowing light memory returning. Beautiful story, Di.
