Today’s challenger is Nicola Best. Nicola’s response to write a story in less than 100 words comes in the form of Treasured Memories. I’m sure there are a lot of readers that can associate with Nicola’s story.
‘I love autumn.’ I pick up the beautiful, glossy conkers and stuff them into my pockets.
‘What are you doing?’ My husband asks.
‘They’re pretty,’ I lie.
When we get home I put my treasure hoard on the windowsill.
‘Why are you putting them there?’ He asks.
‘To keep out the spiders.’ I lie again.
It’s for the memories – my own as a child, and my sons, now both grown-up and moved away.
Playing conkers –
Playing happy families-
Now just the two of us – leaving an empty nest.
Still, there’s always the dog.
What a lovely story. What do you think?
