Farewell (Friday Fictioneers)

June 23, 2016


Tiff—not Tiffany—huffed out a breath to fog the glass. She swiped her fingers through and stared at the plane, their plane.

She didn’t want to go.

Bobby, her pain-in-the-ass brother of seven bobbed excitedly next to her. “It’ s gonna be so great.”

“Whatever,” she told him.

Her mood didn’t affect him. He raced back to where their parents sat with their hand luggage. Tiff thought back to the last day of school. And Jeremy’s wave. He’d thought she was just going for the summer. She’d didn’t have the heart to tell him the truth.

“Bye,” she whispered.

  1. Nice sense of longing created

  2. Oh that was a sad parting… it’s a difference between forever and summer.

  3. Sounds like she wasn’t able to face the reality of the parting herself. Nicely suggested emotions – the ‘whatever’ says it all.

  4. Dear Laurie,

    I guess he’ll get a ‘dear Jeremy’ letter. Bittersweet and well told.



  5. So sad for Jeremy.

  6. Nice take on the prompt. Well done.

  7. Young love torn apart.

  8. So well done, Laurie.
