Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Who am I?
Who am I?
I ask my parents. They are cagey, but I pester them. As I suspected, I am adopted. Mum hugs me, lets me weep on her shoulder. Gives me an address.
“That’s where she used to live,” she says, doubt in her voice.
A bus ride, two train journeys and a walk. It takes me until late afternoon. It’s a big house, casting a long shadow.
I fidget. Walk up and down. Knock at the front door.
She is grey-haired, rather sad. When she sees me, her eyes widen.
“Sally! Would you like to come in?” she says.
