Flash Fiction Friday, April 20, 2012 ~ Focus

Ah, today we have quite a mixed bag of responses to the photo below for your reading pleasure.  Uninspired all week by this picture, I must admit that I was creatively pushed into this Flash by my co-authors.  What a talented lot they are.  My purient partners in prose led me to the following Flash of 100 words, no more ~ no less, based on this week's photo selection.  Please follow this link  Flasher Fiction Friday  and read their ever inspiring take on the photo itself...............

Focus

A continent away, I raised the kerchief to my face.  Agonized, they leaned forward, eagerly. Their breathing, the smell of their pain and sound of their hopeful heartbeats was distracting.
Focus
My intuitive response transcended their anguished obsession.
Focus
He was playing with the dog.  He was trying to blindfold the pup to play hide-n-go-seek. He was laughing in the front yard, his Mother turned from the window to answer her husband.
I felt the soft touch of a sigh.
Focus
A screech, clap, yelp and sliding van door.  Shrouded ...…. UBW 376 ……. in a whir of dark blue steel.

Both gone in a cry......

    1. Oh, Sancre, you are always so kind and encouraging. I meant her to be a clairvoyant, retained by guilt ridden parents trying to find their abducted little boy. Having handed her the kerchief the child last touched while trying to blindfold his puppy, they hoped she could help find him. So much to try to try to get across in so few words. I hope that came across. Did you submit today?:) xo

  11. Great description of a complicated picture. I get from your read that her life disappeared quite suddenly and she would not get it back. Great FFF
