I set out to travel to the ends of the world. My friends joined but soon turned back. It was an arduous trip. On the final road was a sign compelling me to stop. I continued. Around the bend, a wizened old man sat beside the road.
He said, “You have a choice. Return to any point in your life and live from there onwards. Or, return back and continue your journey as it has been.”
Moments in my life flashed before me. Ones with heartfelt feelings of regret, pain, or joy replayed in slow motion.
“Choose!” the old man said.
“Friday Fictioneers” is a weekly challenge by Rochelle Wisoff Fields. The challenge is to write a story, using only 100 words, in response to a photo prompt. It has been a lot of fun to join in with this fantastic and encouraging group of writers! This week’s beautiful photo was taken by Bjorn Rudberg. If you would like to read other stories, click HERE.
