Family matters

I’m a little late with my story this week, but here it is! Enjoy. 

Rain slid from the leaves like the tears down her cheeks. Fog crept down the valley like a fox stalking a rabbit. Mud squelched under her galoshes piercing the evening silence. Five minutes to the farm.

She ran her fingers over the peeling paint on the fence and the initials she’d carved so many years ago. She and brother Gil flew kites in this field and caught rainbow in the stream.

After Gil drowned, she became invisible — invisible for more than fifty years.

Their last will and testament finally broke the silence.

They should have left the damned farm to a charity.

  1. love your use of similes to start the imagination wondering what type of family matters will your character go through . . . enjoyable story.

  2. Caerlynn, This seems to be a story of extreme lonliness. We all suffer loss but need to get on with our lives. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to cut ourselves off from others. Well written story. 🙂 —Susan
