This story is a response to the Challenge posted on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. A story with a beginning, middle and end in just 100 words or below, making every word count. Here goes my attempt, hope you guys like it.
The Fairytale Way…
“Mary….think about it again…its your life, please take a prudent decision.”
Mom’s words ring in my head repetitively.
“Your dad loves you…does he…that guy?”, she asked. I had fought with her that night.
“Lives don’t go the fairytale way…” do they?
We were to flee that night…in my dad’s old canoe. Nobody would miss it…I don’t recall when I saw it last in waters.
But its dawn…am sitting in the canoe…waiting for him.
I think mom was right, lives are never led…THE FAIRYTALE WAY.
