Friday 4/23/10 - "AHEAD"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55

"AHEAD"

Weary, lost, and uncertain, she found herself on the edge of "knowing", of "understanding".

Ahead a beckoning light called her forward.


Till now life had seemed just one crazy game of chess.


As she stood, a mist began to rise separating her from her past.

It was the moment of decision.

Confidently she stepped forward.

P.S. "L" - you were on my mind when I wrote this. I dedicate it to you. I know you will read it.

Flash Fiction Friday 55 is hosted by G-Man

Life is just one step at a time. Even then we do what we can do.

What a fantastic illustration, and perfect for your piece. The moment of decision, in response to knowing and understanding.

I don't know why, but I could hear your post being read in Rod Serling's voice.

"Signpost up ahead; your next stop, the Twilight Zone."

Wanda's Wings said...

To continue to go on is always the answer! We are never alone!

Cynthia said...

A mist began to rise separating
her from her past - and she steps
forward. Yes- step in Faith.
