Rochelle’s 100 word story challenge this week is prompted by a photo full of possibilities.

Here’s my story.


The silver shimmer merges with the soft rays of the morning sun, wreathes around the half open window. Summoned  to this household. Grace turns over in bed, stirred by the ripple of her curtain, a passing silver light. The pang of her loss invades her again. Dear brother, disappeared. No messages, no future happiness without him.

Downstairs, Persephone makes breakfast. Smiles at the new presence beside her. Her powers still work.

‘Anniversary of your brother’s disappearance Grace. If he were here now what would you say to him ?’

‘Luke, I forgive you with all my heart.’

Unnoticed the silver light melts and is gone.
