Flash Fiction For The Purposeful Practitioner …week #10 2016
This is my 197 word submission for the flash fiction challenge, Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner, hosted by Roger Shipp. He provides us with a photo prompt and approximately 200 words with which we create our stories.
Sentence….”I know it’s only been three weeks……
Letter To Dad
I know it’s only been three weeks, but it feels like three months since you left.
I don’t understand why people have to start a war. They should find a way to get along with each other.
I miss you so much, dad. We always have fun together. I don’t have a lot of fun anymore. Mom works at the factory and I have to go with her. I stay in the snack room or find something to do outside in the back of the factory.
Mom told me to remember all the good times we had together when ever I feel lonely and upset. So, as I look out the window, I see us in the 3 legged race at the picnic, and mom is on the sidelines cheering us on.
We hop and giggle, and we are having a blast and we want it to last, then we finish last. We laugh even more!
The factory manager gave me a puppy today! We can play outside together. She’s such a sweet puppy, so I named her Lollipop.
I love you dad, and will write every day, and keep my memories close by. Heidi
