Friday Fictioneer: Up Top View
“Hurry up, it’s almost time.”
Charley climb up and sit down.
“Are you sure no one will mind?” he asked.
“No. Mom used to take me up here when I was little,” Sissy said.
“Your mom climbed up here and sat on the roof? My mom would never do that.”
“Sometimes I come up here, stare at the stars, and remember her.”
“Sorry she’s gone.”
“It’s okay, she lived a good life. She taught me to enjoy every moment. And that’s what I’m going to do. “
A loud boom signaled the beginning of the show.
“Look! The first firecracker.”

A sweet story, well told in believable dialogue. I enjoyed this very much.
I think you might mean “The end” and not “They end.”
Thanks I do mean the. And thanks for the compliment.
I also like your story with the last minute save.
Nicely told, Phyllis. That would be a special mom memory.
A couple of small things I noticed: “Mom used to…”, not “use” and in the same sentence, “take me up here”, rather than “her”. “It’s OK” or “It’s okay.” 🙂
Yay! Quite uplifting! 😀
