Friday Fictioneers, Oct 14th – Angel’s Glow

Here we go again. Another week another Challenge from the Friday Fictioneers. The goal is to write a story, 100 words or less, based on the photo prompt. If you would like to check out the challenge’s blog HERE is the link.

Once again a big thank you to Rochelle Wisoff for taking the time to host the Friday Fictioneers challenge and for dedicating so much time to reading and commenting on all the submissions. And of course, I would also like to thank everyone that read my post last week and for taking the time to comment.

Angel’s Glow

The winds roared, a freight train barreling towards us. We huddled in the cramped shelter clinging to hope. Hope that our little family survived and that our battered farmhouse and carefully planted fields would exist when we emerged. My father lit lanterns describing how the glow was from angels and was sent to keep us safe.

Although the storms that threaten to destroy me now rage from within that does not make them less terrifying than the tornadoes of my childhood. Day or night, when I feel them building, I light the lanterns and take shelter in the angel’s glow.

100 words

Thanks for reading. If you would like to read more entries, they can be found HERE.

  1. You said after reading mine you wished you’d written yours. I don’t think there’s anything to rewrite here. This is strong and unsentimental. It needs unsentimental language

    1. Thank you. In hind sight I don’t think there was any outstanding verbage but I’m glad the story came through.
