#FF — Reunion


PHOTO PROMPT © Penny Gadd

How did you find us, brother?,” asked Araba.

Mother hid a family photo in my pack, which I have protected all of these years,” said Kwaku, as he pulled out a dog-eared photo. It was of all six of them, with their names, their city, and a date.

The quadruplets went to their parents’ home. Mother’s puffy red eyes swept theirs and stopped at Kwamu. Crying out, “My son!”

She and Kwaku clung to each other and wept with joy.

Boss Kobby promised to teach you a trade. The photo was given to remember and to return some day.”

The End.

Today’s flash fiction concludes a three-part story. The first part of the story (posted two weeks ago) is found here. The second part (last week’s) of the story is here.

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the host with the most of Friday Fictioneers.

      As far as I know. If I had more chapters, I was thinking of putting a twist in there, where the photo was taken away from their brother and he was an imposter, but I didn’t want to keep it going, so I gave it a happy ending that he is their brother 🙂

        I thought it was going to be a twist…their wicked cousin or something…but a happy ending is good.

      Thank you, Sascha. Thankfully the photo this week lent itself to a happy ending 🙂

      1. It did for *you* at any rate. Not a lot of happiness in these other stories. 😰

          Right, as this is just a fictional happy ending, whereas the reality of child slavery and parents selling a child so the rest don’t starve are ongoing tragedies.

    I’m betting Boss Kobby (even the name gives me chills) didn’t do much teaching

  10. Dear Lisa,

    Lovely culmination of your three-part story. Each part stands alone so I didn’t feel the need to go back and read the others. I did remember last week’s in any event. I love a happy ending.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    So a happy ending. Kwaku has learnt a trade and returned to his mother and brothers.

      Abhijit, he learned a trade of sorts, but I’m sure not what his parents had in mind when they let him go. Yes, there was a happy ending 🙂

    What a horrifically happy story! I can’t imagine many true stories of children sold into slavery end as well.

      Agreed, but in the fictional world anything can happen, even good things…
