Ruined – #FridayFictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a #100wordstory in response to a photo prompt. Photo prompt (c) Roger Bulltot.


They were here, on their way back from the beach. Rob, followed by the kids—the twins, who’ve just turned thirteen, and Amelie, the youngest one.

They followed Rob as he led them along the moss-laden brick wall, up the broken steps, to the opening, from where they could have an unhindered view of the plains.

I followed them.

It was so long since I held them close, the boys and the little one, Amelie—What if I could…just once?

“I saw mom…behind that wall!” sobbed Amelie.

Rob rushed to comfort her. I watched, achingly, from the corner.

    1. It is true, what you say! Children alone can see through that! In this case, with a lot of heartache and anguish as well as loss! 😦


    1. Thank you for your kind words! The prompt has been one of the best that I’ve seen so far! Love all the amazingly inspiring writers of #FF!
