Friday Fictioneers – Third Age

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 (the blue frog) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Third Age

Well!

Isn’t this exciting?

It’s such fun looking out of the train window. Look – there’s my house, high on the hill!

Hours pass. We’ll soon reach the city where I was born.

We rumble into the suburbs, between scruffy trees that half reveal lawns and colourful gardens. I used to play football with my daughter in a garden like this; she has her own children now.

Tall buildings close in, houses converted into apartments. Didn’t I have a flat in one of these as a student?

What an adventure I shall have, living here for my creative writing course!
