“Just a box of memories,” Frank said, breathing with some difficulty. “I want you to remember only the best bits.”
Gently taking the box from his trembling fingers, she placed it on the bedside table and helped him from his wheelchair. After tucking him in, Cynthia took out her phone and snapped a photo.
He cringed. “Why did you do that?”

This story is my contribution to “Friday Fictioneers,” a weekly challenge hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff Fields. With the help of a photo prompt to inspire, we’re to write a 100-word story. The photo this week was taken by Ted Strutz.
