I thought I’d reblog this as it seems pretty topical under current circumstances.
So now it’s time for the tenth weekly Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. The image below is from Mrs-White at DeviantArt.com.
They walked together hand in hand,
Each glad to have found the other.
No words were spoken, they both assumed
They were lost sister and brother.
The masks withheld their identity,
Two people who were in fact strangers,
Searching for shelter in the aftermath,
On alert for potential dangers.
He guided her, she held on to him,
Found a safe place that would do,
Removed the masks and exclaimed in shock
Both saying ‘I do not know you!’
Embarrassed, they introduced themselves
Made plans for their next steps,
Then curled together under gloomy skies
The sole survivors slept.
