Years passed in only one day. He replaced the boots on the stone wall where he had borrowed them that morning. He left a note for the owner:
Thank you for the boots, though I didn’t ask permission. I’m sorry for the duct tape. They wore out a bit from miles of travel, over years and years. Putting on the boots this morning, I was taken back in time, then forward, then back … well, you get the picture. I wasn’t able to change past events much for the better, though I tried. Maybe I’ll get another chance.
“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. It has been a lot of fun to join in with this fantastic and encouraging group of writers! This week’s photo was submitted by Courtney Wright, the photographer would like to remain anonymous.
