100-word Flash Fiction
This week’s story is inspired by this photograph provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
I’m back after taking a few weeks to write for NaNoWrMo. I made my 50,000 on Day 15, but I’m still writing until the end of the month just to see how far I can go. I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I did! Whoohoo! And now for my story… Enjoy!
“I had shoes like that once.”
“What did you do with them?”
“I threw them off the Tallahatchie Bridge.”
“I wore them every day until Billie jumped off that bridge.”
“But why throw your shoes into the water?”
“A remembrance, I guess. Billie loved those shoes. He liked that they made me taller and he didn’t have to bend as far to kiss me. He was over six feet tall, you know.”
“Why did he jump?”
“People have lots of theories, but no one knows. I don’t know. Some people speculated we tossed our baby, but that ain’t true.”
