PHOTO PROMPT – © Emmy L Gant
“The storm’s coming,” she said as black clouds billowed across the sky. I remember how calm she was, and it washed over all of us despite the growing dread that took root in my stomach. No one could have imagined what the storm would bring, including my mother.
It felt like only moments after she spoke that the elements transformed into a raging beast, clawing and crashing its way across our lives. I don’t know how anyone survived. Most didn’t.
Living among the devastation is a constant reminder of everything and everyone we’ve lost.
Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction prompt where we are given a photo and asked to write a 100 word story – beginning, middle and end. This one came in at 94 words and I ended up using the photo as, I don’t know… I didn’t know what that was on the table so I drew my inspiration from the sky. I hope you enjoy anyway!
