Absent.

Day5

The challenge of the day… to imagine you’ve stumbled across a letter that hasn’t made it to its addressee, and to create a story from it in as few words as possible.

So to the great Hemmingway for inspiration I go, incorporating this challenge with my usual Flash Fiction Friday series of six word stories…

 

If only they knew. He lived.

    Funny, Hubby and I were just talking about Hemingway last night, after I wrote mine. This is super!

      How funny! You did very well with your piece too, it’s quite an effort to tell a story in such few words isn’t it?!
