#FF — Undone


PHOTO PROMPT © Jean L. Hays

Today is the final chapter of a 3-part story.  You can find the other chapters — last week’s FF and the week before’s — after this chapter.  Hopefully this answers the questions of enquiring minds.

Dinner was uneventful. They headed back to ACU* and were greeted there by a lady sitting on a bench with her Shih Tzu. Mrs. Jones’ Shih Tzu had passed a few years back.

Gidget! There you are!,” and leaned down to ruffle her ears.

June and Sue got Mrs. Jones settled in and left.

At the car, Sue said, “I have something for you.”

She handed June a large envelope. “Your photos. Auntie gave them to my mom just after she was diagnosed with dementia. She wanted you to have them but knew her stitching was coming apart.”

The End.

[99 words]

    OK, I missed the first one two weeks ago, but now I went through all of them and got it. Yeah, poor mom, at least she had the foresight to plan for that.

    I wonder how much we know? My aunt definitely had an idea what was going on, but I never saw it with my mother. (K)

    A touching story, that Auntie was thinking of her nieces as she slipped into the greyness of dementia.

    So, to refresh my sometimes inaccurate memory, I went back and read #1 and #2 before reading #3. You did a great job of tying it all together. I hope, before my brain goes to La La Land permanently, that I have the sense to save my daughter and daughters-in-law some trouble ahead of time!

      1. No worries credit where credits due. To write a 3 parter is possible but to tie in with the photos require lateral thinking

    Mrs Jones mixing up the other lady’s Shih Tzu with her own is so bittersweet. Clever foreshadowing of the ending. Nice series!

    Oh that’s sad. A lovely use of the image and a great wrap up to the 3 part story. My mum’s mum has dementia. Unraveling is a good way to put it.
