“In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about someone unremembered.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.
Tom and the man sat next to him remained in silence for a moment.
“Who was she to you?” – the stranger asked.
“Mother” – Tom uttered.
“I’m sorry for your loss” – said the man, wiping a single tear off his cheek.
“You’ve known her?” – Tom inquired.
“We were young. I was stupid, so we parted ways. I finally found her on Facebook last week, and we were supposed to meet last Sunday” – he answered.
“I’d love to know how she spent the past 30 years” – he added.
“Unremembered. She gave me up when I was only a few months old.”
