Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: 2022: Week #46.

The Six Easy Guidelines

A photo prompt topic is to be used as your ‘muse’. They will arrive promptly at midnight each Wednesday morning. Include the photo prompt and its credits with your story on your blog.

All stories are to be crafted and honed to under 300 words in length. Each flash fiction piece should have a clear beginning, middle, and end. No serial stories. It is harder to stay abreast of a serial story. (Please keep content PG-13.)

Once you have your post complete, create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. If that is not an option for you, add your post’s link in the comments section. It is the desire of this blog to become a flourishing writing community.

The Chair

It’s just always there, seemingly waiting for its next occupant. It had many in the last three hundred years and all were quite enjoyable for the most part. It’s not easy for anyone sitting there, contemplating. It’s a hard choice to make. Moving on from the comfortable and familiar always is.

Today the chair will be occupied by Jane Smith, quite a looker in her day but that never mattered to her. Her purpose in life was to establish the understanding that women should have equal rights, a fight of sorts that wavers in accomplishments. Political winds change frequently and she strove to combat them.

She sat there wondering if she could have done more, thinking of the choice she had to make. Could she do more if she returned, or was it time to rest? She had raised her children to fight, carry on and they would continue her work. Her husband would also help. Jane considered these facts and decided to let go, it was time.

The chair rocked her quietly and then Jane started her forever sleep, comforted by the knowledge her family would resume their mission. It was only a few seconds the chair rocked, sending Jane to her future.
