Friday Fictioneers – “Knots”

Some days just feel like Fridays, don’t they?  Toiling all week long can leave you feeling drained, and sometimes it’s nice to simply escape into the world of fiction for a moment.

 

 

This week, I’m doing just that by entering a weekly Friday Fictioneers post.  If you want to join the fun, simply write a 100-word story based on the photo prompt below, which was provided by Sandra Crook.

 

 

Happy Friday, everyone!

Knots

 

Harry trudged downstairs, shoulders heavy.  His back cried out with each step, and his trembling fingers even struggled to hold his beloved cup of tea.

 

Outside, a tear slid down his cheek as he gazed at the branches of an old oak tree- a lasting friend.  Its fingers were gnarled, covered in unsightly wrinkles and painful knots.  Each wound had been well earned, but who would remember?

 

“Look at this beautiful tree,” a lovely woman mentioned to her husband on their morning stroll.  “Now that’s character.”

 

The tea delighted Harry’s quivering lips.  This would be a good day, after all.
