This will be a new weekly post 100 Word Wednesday. It’s a writing prompt meme by https://bikurgurl.com/2019/09/11/100-word-wednesday-week-137/ which invites others to share in the joys and creativity of micro fiction. I’ll let her explain:

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided.
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I try to read them all and post your submission in the Weekly Windup.
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions!

My entry for the week.

She was gone. He couldn’t believe it, but it was true. One moment he was waiting at the bottom of the steps noticing her bike still untouched from last Friday’s return from school, the next he found himself here staring into the eyes of the boy in the fountain who’s gaze was as motionless as his own.
“What now”, he asked himself as if he were the one surrounded by waters he could not part, as catatonic and immobile as the one he stared at. As if the boy would answer a question he himself hadn’t solved yet.
“She’s gone”.
