I got a chance this week to write with the Friday Fictioneers. If you want to have a little fun, join in…Madison Woods puts out a photo prompt on a Wednesday and on Fridays everyone shares their 100-word fiction pieces. Below is the photo prompt for this week, followed by my writing. Have a great weekend.
I walked into the old dining room, the guys were gutting the whole house. They were down to the floral wallpaper.
“Stop, wait, please, give me a moment.” I pleaded, against no opposition.
In that moment the room was transformed. I sat at the claw-footed table with the worn, cream, plastic tablecloth with blue and red florets. Little Joe was in his high chair, Claire next to me, and Gran and Gramps were in their own world, waltzing to Les Paul and Mary Ford’s, Vaya Con Dios playing on the old console record player. We loved to watch them dance. Saturday nights were wonderful.
I turned before they saw my eyes, “Go ahead, tear down the wall.”
