Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers challenge this week is prompted by Dale’s intriguing photo.


Aaron moved from one foot to another, a lone figure illuminated in the darkness by the park light. ‘Where was Aisha ? Their coach was leaving at 4 a.m, she was cutting it fine.’  His mind churned with their painstaking debates, would a mixed marriage work, he Jewish, she Muslim ? His true loyalty lay with his mother, his deepest love was for Aisha his soulmate. They’d agreed to start a new life in the city.

Aaron watched her approaching him.

Aisha said ” Aaron I have to tell you I’ve changed my mind. I’m devastated but  my family would never accept us.”
