One sentence story #25

Painting by Ramon Casas


Just one more minute, he begged, a moment to say goodbye, but the soldiers laughed and pointed to the empty window where his wife should have been watching to catch the last light in his eyes.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Hope weekend went well. I had unexpected and unplanned trip, but I can rest up over the next few days, thankfully.
        ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
        wishing you a great day and wonderful week ahead.

      2. The weekend was a long one—we had the Monday too (Whitsuntide). The summer is being very hesitant but that’s not too bad; it means the plants stay green 🙂

      3. Glad to hear, we had Memorial Day to extend our weekend on our side. Sons came in as surprise from school. Taking intensive courses so no real Summer break. I agree on Summer, I can have it drag out until November if necessary to keep intense heats away. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        First time we visited my Mom in Mississippi, it was in November, Saturday before Thanksgiving and it was 85 on the Tarmac at the small regional airport. So thankful she had not cut all the shade trees near her house or the Kids would’ve not survived the heat. ;<(((
        I can understand why our oldest stay in Europe during Summer seasons and visit before or after. I am so thankful to the inventor of air conditioner sand refrigerators. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Any more rain, and I'll have to insert flippers in my tomato plants. (◔◡◔)

      4. It gets hot here in the summer (into the top 90°s) but it’s bearable because the ocean is very close. On the whole it’s a good climate without extremes.

      5. Sounds wonderful. TN is a little cooler than where lived in MS, more shade trees and the lake held, too I think. Maybe just perception :-D:-D

      6. It siuts me. Winters are mild—I can’t stand the cold, and I don’t mind the heat. I’m sure you’re right that the lake helps with giving an impression at least of cool.

      7. Mississippi made you always feel soaked from May until Nov-Dec. Humidity just drained energy so fast if you went outside between 8 in morning until 10 at night. Mild winters and family kept us there longer than originally planned. Now, this ideal for my mini-Clan. As long as the environmentalist don’t sue for fishes to have rights, we’re safe. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      8. Yes, indeed, I will. Perfect place if and when the world goes absolutely crazy or just too weird for us. We’re planning for more self-sufficiency in the near future. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      9. Yes, indeed. We have a backup in SW NM if we need it, thankfully I inherited from a couple with no family, no children just had to fight state to retain grandfathering rights. 😀 😀
