It’s time for Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write a 100-word story based on a photo prompt. Thank you to our lovely hostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, and to J. Hardy Carroll for this week’s magical photo.
All are welcome to join in the fun. Visit the Friday Fictioneers page for details.
Mowed lawns and watering schedules marked time at Lakewood Cemetery. For Tabitha and Elsa, it was burial plots turned with fresh soil.
“Wait until they leave at least,” Elsa said, behind a tree.
“She looked nice.” Tabitha picked up a bouquet and twirled. “Such lovely flowers. She must be loved.” She stomped on the gravestone.
“It’s her time to rest, Elsa. Be patient.”
Tabitha lay her head in Elsa’s lap, and stared up at her mirror image of blond curls and soft, pink lips. “I’m tired of being patient. When will Mom and Dad get here?”
“There, there. Soon, sister.”
