Sophie absentmindedly rubbed her scarred ankle. It felt as if the heavy metal cuff still clung there, from the length of chain that had held her captive.
Feeling antsy, she asked again, “When do we leave?”
“Be patient, Sophie,” Abigail urged.
Two days later Tatty announced, “It’s time!”
Stepping from the house that served as a refuge, Sophie’s eyes fixed on the chains that swung from a post nearby. Each chain a reminder of someone set free. One of those chains had been hers.
It was time to free the others.
“Friday Fictioneers” is a weekly challenge hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff Fields. The challenge is to write a story, using only 100 words, in response to a photo prompt. This week’s photo was provided by Douglas L. McIlroy. It has been a lot of fun to join this fantastic and encouraging group of writers!
