Friday Fictioneers – WEB

14 September, 2012

As always, thanks to Madison for running FriFic and the prompt:

I have come in at exactly 100 words, all comments and criticism welcome as always.

 

He unfolded a single sheet of paper and breathed deeply.
His eyes swept slowly across the congregated friends and family.
He began to read.

‘Wendy Elizabeth Barrow.
She seemed so fragile with her slight, slender frame.
But she was the strongest person I knew.
She was a complex person, often changing.
She was pretty, she seemed to sparkle in the light.
She gave me a home when I was young and I had nowhere else to go.
She provided for me, ensured I was never hungry.

She was a daughter, mother, wife, friend.
But to me she was my sister.’
