Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
This week’s prompt by Erin Leary is a beautifully serene view of tranquil waters.
It took me to a very unusual place in my head.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture, below.
You know that, for me, it was love at first sight.
You remember all the good times, every day trip, every town, every lake, every beach, we ever visited.
You remember when we saw the fish dancing, and the eagles singing, and the beaver gnawing on the branch.
You remember the names of people I introduced you to a year ago in the little café in the square.
You remember that I asked you to marry me.
I know this, because you forget nothing.
Do you really have so much love in your life that you can discard mine so casually?
