Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image above by © Bill Reynolds
A large ‘Where’s Delilah?’ poster was stuck on the bus stop shelter, another on a shop window, both faded. Jimmy and Lisa never gave up hope of finding their daughter. Snatched in a busy crowd when she was three, they believed Delilah was still alive. Somewhere.
Meanwhile, on a dilapidated orchard 800 kilometres away…
“Lily, pass me those pink roses, love?”
“Okay. Are we still going to Sally’s for my birthday?”
“You bet! It’s your 13th!”
“Cool! I love you, Aunty Pam.”
“I love you too, hun. Your mum and dad in heaven will be so proud of you.”
