I missed Friday Fictioneers last week and back on it today and found it a little tricky. I rewrote this several times and there are many alternative endings, however the one with the unhappy ending prevailed (doesn’t it always!)
If you want to have a go, view the image courtesy of Madison Woods and write 100 words based on that story. Visit her site, comment on her story with a link back to your own. 100 words is a guide rather than a rule, I’ve gone over yet again!
It started under the bridge and tonight that’s where it would end. Nick waited in the concrete shadows, shivering in the cold. The echoes of her stiletto footsteps pounded against the walls as she walked towards him. Jessica’s curves clung to her red dress, her long dark hair tumbling past her shoulders. Nick looked down at his wedding ring and then back at the stunning woman in front of him. For a year they had led separate lives, his wife barely spoke to him, their vows erased like a painful memory. It was supposed to end tonight but Nick was unsure which direction he should walk.
Jessica smiled “You coming?”
He nodded, took her hand and followed her through the darkness.
