Flash Fiction Friday - View Through The Lock



Yum, it's more Flash Fiction and today we're flashing big time. For more Flashing fun visit my friends. Hope you enjoy!

For fifteen years that picture hung on the back wall the diner. Lucy had never even given it a second glance until Mike said the woman looked like her. Lucy stood near the back booth studying the picture. She could barely make out the woman's face. It might be her mom, Anna, but who was the guy?

She couldn't ask her mom now. The funeral had been yesterday. Why hadn't she ever looked at this before?

Lucy took the picture off the wall and turned it over. The inscription said 'Anna and James.' Oh crap, her long lost father too.

Long lost father? And now a dead mother this poor woman is going through hell. And what is a diner doing with a picture of them through a keyhole? Interesting! I wish I could get the rest of the story. Well done.

That's what happens when you don't pay attention to the photos on your wall. And now it's too late to question mom about it. Now off to fidn dad. Great post Sara! :o)

Good thing she didn't notice it while her mother was alive. Might have given her a heart attack. Great view of an interesting pic.

Poor Lucy! :( I had seen a similar scenario in Cyril's post, now I come here and read it on yours, Sara. Must be something in the air. ;)

It's that close to Christmas blues going around, Luna.

Thanks for your comments everyone.

Great post, Sara! Hope she finds out who the guy is and he's not an ass!

Wow! Fascinating - very neat but where's the rest *HG*. Surely this is the start of a story, hm? Yes? ;)

I loved this Sara. It has a very real Hitchcock feel, of something curiously sinister yet erotic. The sienna hue of the photo lends itself to a 'Rock of Ages' for Anna. Bet she was once a fun chick to have at a party:) xo Well done!

Nice! I love how it creates more questions than it answers.

Don't you just love when things come creeping out of the family closet? Nice FFF. :)

wow, I love the take on this. I'm watching the Bridges of Madison County and think about how our parents are sexual creatures and how difficult it is for children to think in those terms. Very nice FFF

Aw, that's a lovely interpretation, very fitting with the sepia picture. Loved it!
