“Do you think we’ll find the truth?”
Excitedly, Ruth answered Ann’s question. “Finding this camera will exonerate my father.”
Ruth’s father told her not to waste her life searching for it. Now, her quest was almost over. Carefully transporting the camera to the lab, she dislodged the disc and extracted the data. Ann gasped, as she stood watching over Ruth’s shoulder. When Ruth finished scrolling through the images, she ejected the disc and crushed it. Her face like stone, she turned and smashed the camera.
This was not the truth Ruth had been looking for. It must be destroyed.
Trying my hand at a suspense story this week! I’ve been away, traveling from Hong Kong (where I currently live) back to the US (where I am originally from) for a number of weeks visiting family and friends. It was a wonderful trip, but I’m glad to have returned and ready to join in again with friends at Friday Fiction. This fiction writing challenge is hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We are inspired by a photo each week to create a story, using only one hundred words. This week, the photo was taken by Ted Strutz.
Give it a try! It is a lot of fun and everyone in the group is amazingly encouraging. To read other’s stories, click HERE.
