Friday Fictioneers BONUS – Wedding Photo

30 November, 2012

I know it wasn’t intended as a prompt, but I was inspired to write a second piece this week Rochelle‘s photo:

All comments and criticism welcome. Obviously this is a work of fiction and is in no way intended to reflect Rochelle personally!

 

After the funeral, he offered to help clear some of his mother’s effects, and in the bedroom he found a box of old photographs at the back of a drawer. He took a handful and slowly looked through her memories of a time before he was born. He stopped at a sepia wedding picture, smiled at the love between his parents. But then he paused, looked again, and he felt the blood leave his face. He dropped the rest of the pictures and turned to his father, showed him just this one.

“Dad, he asked, “who is that marrying Mum?”

    Oh! How totally awkward. Lol. Tilting his universe a little. 🙂

    • i was interested in the fact that our parents had a life before we were born that we were not party to. this is an extreme example!

        My mother was married prior to my being born as well. I have an older half sister who insists she’s an only child. My father was married as well and my oldest half brother is 4 years younger than my mom. I found out my parents weren’t married until I was 2 (I attended the wedding). Understand this completely.

      • Thats quite a tangled family tree!
