We Will Always Have Paris

After enough turkey and ham to start a small holding and enough chocolate to cover a small country it’s thankfully back to reality with this weeks Friday Fictioneers. A 100 word photo prompt hosted by the fabulous Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, this weeks photo provided by the equally creative Douglas Macilroy. Follow the link and have a go….


Penny pulled up the collar of her coat against the chill and let herself be swallowed back into the crowd. No more noticeable than the person in-front, behind or on either side.

While up above, Jack still waited on the viewing platform. Arcs of white light cut through a starless black sky and his heart died a little more with every minute that passed. His head knew she wasnโ€™t coming long before his heart did.

He would never know she was there or never know how close she came to meeting him. But she would know and for now that was enough.

  1. Great little story Helen, very well written. I almost stopped after ‘his head knew she wasn’t coming long before his heart did’ it was such a great line but I am glad I kept reading. Well done. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I can hear the violin musical score rising as Jack desperately scans the crowd for Penny’s face. The music ends abruptly. Alas, it was not meant to be.

    You ‘old’ romantic, you. Nicely done.
