Jamie is born.

Sorry, Diary. I thought I had lost you. All those shifts had hidden you well. I have aged, and so are you! All my children have grown up and have a life of their own. Paul had succumbed to his illness 2 years ago. I was all alone. But now I have you.

I’m sorry, Diary, I can’t stay with you for long. Thank you for being here for me. Farewell.

  1. Very unusual and poignant response to the prompt. Amazing how you were able to incorporate an entire lifetime in less than 200 words. Amazing! I really enjoyed reading this! Very creative. Thank you so much for participating in the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers weekly challenge!
