Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #10: a reblog

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.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
