Fiction Friday: Good Bye
Jessica stood at her father’s grave. His body wasn’t there. It was lost.
Because of his death Jessica had joined the Space Program and volunteered for the Akiane Project.
She’d placed the headstone in remembrance of his life, and so she’d have somewhere to visit him.
Thanks to folded space, it was only a twelve-year roundtrip to the Pegasus Galaxy. She’d taken her last furrow to come. It would be twelve years before she could return again.
As she stood, and said good-bye, remembering him, she had no idea that once she left Earth, she’d never set foot on it again.
Friday Fictioneers is a challenge to write a 100 word story from a picture prompt. It’s hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, anyone can play.
For this week’s fiction Friday, I wrote about one of my main characters, Jess Hewett, who is in my novel that will be published in 2014. I’m thinking of changing the title to The Colonists.
