She’ll Never Know (Friday Fictioneers)

(C) The Reclining Gentleman

(C) The Reclining Gentleman

She’ll never know. We’ll be out after dark and home before dawn.

Alexander had promised. And he’d been right.

Night after night, he would come for me. My mother at work and the little ones asleep, I crept out. Into the dark hallway. Down the stairs. Across the bridge.

The parties were loud and warm, the air thick with smoke. We made our way home, giddy and drunk on the night’s events.

She’ll never know.

Alexander had promised.

Until one night, when the lights bore down on us, crossing the bridge to home. A car approaching. Fast.

She will now.


This was my first venture out with the Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. She hosts a weekly flash fiction challenge with a photo prompt and a 100-word limit. Check it out and join the fun!

As always, happy trails!

  1. Dear MWR,

    First off, welcome to Friday Fictioneers. This was good one for your first time around the track. Actually, a good one, period.

    I hope that you will put your story on the linkz list. Simply linking up by way of my Friday Fictioneers page is not a good way to get readers. If you need any help, let me know.
