John – Friday Fictioneers

I now present the fifth and last installment today. Next week I am free of this little epistolary.
The previous parts are here.
The second letter
Jennifer
Ralph
Sue

Friday Fictioneers is a wonderful group of bloggers from around the world who every week gather to write a
story of 100 words (more or less). If you want to know more, go to Rochelle Wissoff-Fields page and check it out. If you only want to check out the great stories click the little blue guy at the bottom.
Just like the previous weeks the letter is exactly 100 words.


Dearest Jennifer

I cannot say how shocked I was when Ralph turned up and told his story.
He told me he had to go to jail for faking his own death, but that will clear you of any criminal record.

It broke my heart to hear about Tony, it must be hard for you but for me a son I never knew is hard to mourn.

Oh to meet you and Sue, and finally live behind a white picket fence.

You can lead a blind horse to water, and you can make him drink.

I never stopped loving you

John

  1. Hooray (and thank you) for happy endings. Let’s hope Jennifer and John make a successful go of things.

  2. Thanks for the great series, Bjorn! Yay for love. One question about the second sentence, should the word “be” be there?

  3. A good roses and white-picket-fence ending, Bjorn. Much happiness to Jennifer and John (and, perhaps, eventual reconciliation with Ralph?)

  4. I just came across your blog for the first time and found out you have also been doing a series… That also has letters involved! Nice! I am just on my third part and wondering if I will go on… Great story! Let me catch up with the previous parts!

  5. Wrapped it up with a bow. Take a bow. (Sorry, had to say that.) I like the conclusion very much has a feel of closure and finality to it. Good job with the series and for not letting a picture of a horse deter you.

    Aloha,

    Doug

  6. Thanks for your visit. Sometimes when we begin something we wonder if it will ever end. You are free! But then we fickle writers are very free with our 100 words 🙂

  7. Bjorn,
    A nice happy ending…I like that. The poet in you shows through. Always a pleasure reading your work and I look forward to some more of your poetry. While I think you did a fabulous job with the series your poetry leaves me wondering as poet..why didn’t I write that! Great job man.

  8. This is not the end of the story. Jennifer is going resent his remark that he couldn’t mourn a son he’d never known and find him unfeeling. He’ll equally not relate to Sue his granddaughter. When the inevitable rows erupt, he’ll pack up his bags and run away again. 🙂 🙂 🙂
