No. 35/100 flash fiction stories. Inspired by the piece “For Chris” by Brock Hewitt.

The scene is clear in my mind. 

It’s almost the same as the one before my eyes, but the forest is greener, younger, like I was. The stream was swollen in those days and now I can barely hear it trickle on by. 

Voices carry on the wind, mine and Connor’s, carefree and confident as only the young can be. We splash our feet in the icy water, toes turning red with cold. 

I dip my foot in that same stream, though it’s murkier now than I remember. It’s warmer, too, a comforting sensation. It wraps meep like the memory, holds me tight in a familiar hug. 

I smile, and my mind continues to dwell in days long past.

When you write as much as I do, you have to take frequent breaks from sitting. A standing desk (not a whole desk, but a mini desk that will sit on top of my current desk with my laptop, keyboard, and mouse and extend upward) will allow me to continue working while maintaining that good blood flow to my brain. Thank you so much for your support that allows me to keep producing free content. God bless you! ♥️ E.J.
