For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 15 May 2015
Traveling along the country road leading home, Harry felt a mix of emotions. Five years had passed since he left to join the military. It was a decision that angered his dad who thought he’d help manage the farm.
Harry wondered how his family would receive him. He was returning a broken man. While on tour in Afghanistan, he stepped on a roadside bomb and lost his leg.
He didn’t have to wait long for an answer. As he approached the familiar gate, he saw them excitedly waiting for him. Home was a place where he’d always be welcomed back.
