Under the able leader of the pack, Rochelle, an imaginative group of hikers strap on their writing gear for a new Friday Fictioneers adventure. The idea is to write a story of 100 words more or less prompted by the photo below. That’s it.
Emmy tightens her lines to 100 words.
The Broken Shoelace
He came into her store looking a bit confused.
Could she replace the broken shoelace of his hiking boot?
She found what he needed.
She noticed the sweetness in his smile and the kindness in his eyes.
He was funny and attentive.
She had not laughed or felt that good since before her divorce years ago.
She cooked dinner.
For three nights and two days of sunshine and daisies she felt like a woman again.
He left a note: “Mercy Darling. I’ll never forget you.”
But he did. Like the broken shoe lace she keeps in her pocket.
