Jane asked “Who moved this statue?”
“Not me, mum!” said Jill. “I’m off to school. See ya!”
“You mean the statue whose head you say is aging?” said John “I didn’t move it”
“Don’t be sarcastic.”

April 13
“I’m sure this wasn’t here yesterday.”
Jill looked at her mother and refrained from rolling her eyes.
John, looking over the newspaper, gave his wife a look.
“Don’t even say a word!” she said.

July 13th before dawn
Jane opened her eyes and found the statue next to her bed.
The now much older statue suddenly grinned.

Why don’t we ever sit under that coconut tree?
My grandfather fell silent, then said:
Like many fathers, I had great hopes and dreams for our first child. I myself still had dreams of traveling the seas. One day, your grandma asked me to look after our son as she went to the market. I carried him to the beach and we lay under that tree.
The sound of a passing ship brought me to my feet. I gazed at the kind of ship I hoped to sail with one day.
The wind blew, a coconut fell, my dreams died.

100 words

I read all your comments and I appreciate them, even if I take long to respond and even if I do not respond to each comment individually.

Last week at the time I think the prompt from our Great Leader went live, I was in the labour ward delighted at the safe delivery of our son Giovanni. You can read about him on my new blog http://theGioChronicles.wordpress.com (Link opens in new window/tab).

About Friday Fictioneers

Every week you get a picture.
