100-word Flash Fiction. #FridayFictioneers
A story inspired by this photo provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
Thomas slept soundly. Isobel didn’t.
She scuffled to her office and lit a candle. Clutter and chaos reigned in the dim light — peanut butter, jam, salt, yogurt, spoon, knife, crackers, a noisy computer fan, sirens screaming outside, a store-bought seashell. This was the jumble of her life. The charade drained her time and energy.
A few words in her final blog post. A note to leave on the kitchen counter. She smiled as she signed her words.
The car was packed.
She could already feel the sand on her toes and sun in her hair.
Sayonara city life!
