WonHundred Word Wednesday: “The fire was getting closer.” September 3, 2014

This week’s prompt is: “The fire was getting closer.” My take on the 100 word story is this:

the fire grew closer 9_3_2014


            Joseph shuffled across the cabin floor. He still wore his official, green Forest Service pants. But, years after retirement, the work shirts didn’t fit quite right anymore. He settled for a t-shirt.

            He muttered at the moth-eaten, bearskin rug near the fireplace. “Don’t you roll your eyes at me, son. I put you on that floor and I will make sure you stay there.”

            He stepped outside. The tremor in his hands stilled when he grasped the shovel and the hose with determination. The fire was getting closer. It wouldn’t take his cabin, Beverly’s last resting place, without a fight.
