Ready Or Not

Girlie On The Edge Six Sentence Story prompt – Visa

It’s been five whole years since they last talked.
The pandemic lockdown broke them apart, and the need for companion snuffled the remanence of love.
Living with stage four cancer turned her world upside-down, priority of life, things that truly matter and making amends were all she could think of in every waking moment.
She stocked up in medicications, purchased a plane ticket, got a visa approval, and said goodbye to her loved ones, in case she doesn’t make it back home after the trip.
The same driver way, the same door, the same smell of the garden, and the same bird songs, all these were so familiar, but it’s a gamble, she wasn’t really sure if he still lives there, and it felt like centuries have passed before she worked up the courage to knock at the door.
The door opened and a young woman was looking at her, then called out her name, ‘Dad took his own life two months ago, we are here to tidy up his house for sale, would you like to come in?’

  1. Time. We often take it for granted, putting off (fill in the many blanks) until sometimes, like your MC discover, it’s too late.
    Loved your reading of the story, C as your voice carried the tone and timbre of your words.
    Well done.

    1. Thank you Denise. I enjoy very much to write to your prompts. I probably will read some of my work out loud when I feel it’s a piece of emotional work. I am totally inspired by others to test the reading word.
