I am joining Jenny for Saturday Centus, a fun weekly meme that let's us stretch our creativity and imagination. We are provided with a prompt, and then write a story with no more than 100 words. The prompt for this week's story is in blue type. Make sure to stop by Jenny's place and see some wonderful writers at work!
"Just look at that sky Daddy! It's the same color that you painted our front porch ceiling. Remember how you told me it would keep the haints at bay? And that magnolia tree is even bigger than the one in our back yard. Isn't this just the prettiest place you've ever seen?"
“May I help you, miss? You look puzzled.” “Mmmm… thank you, I’m just looking for my father. We came in together a moment ago, but he seems to have wandered off.”
"Are you sure? I saw you come in a while ago, and you were alone."
Alone. Reality slowly dawned on me. Yes, I was alone.
I turned and slowly walked back through the gates of the old cemetery. I sure hope Daddy is happy here.
