#FF — There she is!


PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

June was reeling from her mother’s comment about the absence of photographs of her. She let the comment slide until she could talk with her cousin, Sue. Sue’s mom, Aunt Gin, had been inseparable with Mom. If anyone knew family secrets it would be Sue.

June and Sue spent the day moving Mom into the assisted care unit, then all three decided to celebrate by going out for dinner. As they walked along, Mrs. Jones pointed to the sky and said, “There, June! There’s your mom and her friends. Ask her about your pictures!”

June was happy – yet sad now.

[101 words]

This story can stand alone, but it was written as the second of two parts of a story.
Part 1 was last week and can be found here.

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the entertaining host of Friday Fictioneers.

      Maria wants to hear from Mom’s side of things, so there may be a chapter 3 next week, so we’ll see…

    It’s very like the random statements my mother made as her cognition declined. How to decipher that language, which seems to consist only of symbols? (K)

      It would/will be a challenge. Were you able to decipher some of your mom’s language?

        Sometimes but mostly it was a mystery.

  6. You left us dangling last week, and today, although a little closer, there are still things to be discussed. A great tale.

  7. ‘Random’ statements are often the thorniest one…

    Slight tension between the characters here, a sort of random statement or brutal honesty.

    I agree with Keith’s Ramblings… we need closure! It’s great though…personally, I take it as she is crazy… I like ambiguous though.

  11. Dear Lisa,

    It seems June’s not much closer to finding out who her mother is. I’m intrigued.

    Shalom,

      Rochelle, next week all questions will be answered, or maybe all answers will be questioned 😉 Thanks for reading and commenting.
      Shalom,

    Photograph is good. But it is better to have the picture etched in mind. That way it will never be missed.

    So, is Mom slipping mentally or playing a cruel game? Maybe she doesn’t see the relocation to the assisted care unit as something to celebrate.

  17. Still, secrets to be discovered. A good continuance of the story, Lisa. These days, the secret couldn’t have been kept so easily. Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
