The Photo Writing Prompt
Description for my blind/visually impaired readers: A car has crashed through a stone embankment.
This one’s not fiction, folks. It’s the first place my mind went when I saw the prompt, and being highly relevant and personal, I disregarded my usual guidance and wrote that story rather than brainstorming a couple of other options first.
The Story: Urgent Care
He took Mom to urgent care at 9 PM. I cleaned blood out of the carpet, did the red-stained laundry, then walked home to wait.
Hours rolled by.
No call or even a text.
At midnight I texted him: Update?
Every half-hour I went back. Porch light still on. Nobody home.
Had he in his anger driven over an embankment or wrapped the car around a tree?
2:30, I had to sleep. They could call or text
I went back at seven. He, at least, was home. Too early to knock.
At ten, I entered. I hugged Mom tightly.
Thanks for reading!
