Friday Flash: Unexpected Homecoming

Wrote this quick! I think it worked out.

He stumbled down the stairs. Shelia was here, Shelia was here, his beautiful baby girl.

She wore a long white dress, but stared down at the cherry wood of the steps. The top of her head was bare.

He slowed down when he noted a silver chain trailing behind her. It ended in – No! No!

His brother fisted the other end of the silver leash.

His brother’s smirked and mouthed the words: “I win.”

No, he would fight this. It wasn’t over yet. He wouldn’t allow his daughter to suffer.

  1. Oh, wow. I didn’t expect that leash. It makes me wonder what kind of world they’re living in — and when. Great piece, Sonia!

  2. I’m glad you made it in time 🙂 There is so much going here! I wonder about the world they are in, the backstory, everything else. Great piece of short fiction.

Say something and make my day!
