T’was a Foggy night

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #82

The image below is from the Google Hub Photo Frame.
For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a street lamp on the Westminster Bridge in London, looking toward Big Ben and the House of Parliament, which are enshrouded by a heavy fog.

‘Do you remember Flo, we used to walk across this bridge every day.’
‘Yes, I remember Bert. That centre lamp wasn’t working properly then either.’
‘I’d walk you home, kiss you goodnight and then walk back to my digs.’
‘You walked me home because you knew my dad would have whipped you if you hadn’t!
‘We used to hold hands and dream of a future together.’
‘We held hands so that we didn’t lose each other in the fog!’
‘Yes, the fog. Guess times haven’t changed much.’
‘It’s not fog Bert. It’s your eyesight.’

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.
