Friday, 7/10/09 - "THE BOX - ONE YEAR LATER"

"Is she dreaming?"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55
Friday Flash 55 is a story
written in exactly 55 words.
Let the G-Man know if you write one
and read the ones of your fellow writers.


"THE BOX - ONE YEAR LATER"

"Anyone with one year?"

Lucy gently nudges her, she's up front now, hand out, a bronze medallion marked with a Roman Numeral One in it.

She's pinching herself, saying, "Wake up"! Is she dreaming? There are so many changes. She's renting an apartment. Her divorce is proceeding. She's working on Step Twelve.

Life is good.

Note: The following was LAST WEEK's
"55 Flash Fiction Friday"

"THE BOX - REMEMBERING"

She is remembering her confusion feeling so uncomfortable with his concern over where she was going, who with, and when she would be back. These were signs he loved her? Weren't they?

Why did it feel wrong?

She continues, "he hit me the first time about a year after we were married. I returned late."
