Flash Fiction Friday

Welcome to this week’s Flash Fiction Friday. A picture may be worth a thousand words but not for us. We have a picture about which we write a story of 100 words, no more and no less. I am joined by some fabulous writers today who give their take on a picture. To see the picture and the other members click this blog link: Flasher Fiction Friday

I looked out the window and couldn’t stop the tears. These were different, these were happy tears. I’d felt so lonely over the past few days. Losing my cherished Auntie left me questioning my past, present and future, my existence in general. What was my purpose in life? How could I best carry on the legacy of the wonderful woman I just lost? Of all my other family members who went before her? The answer was simple, yet so complicated. I could celebrate love, life and family. Those two guys were here to help put my heart back together again.

Wow, what a heartfelt flash. I hope there is someone there to help you put your heart back together. So is this a trio of men or two men and a lady? Not that I'm picky, but either would work for me. Great flash!

Wow, that tugs at the heartstrings. The Aunt was obviously a pinnacle and I hope that a way to carry on the legacy. Through grief happiness will eventually out. She would wish that. Great flasher.
