For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 30 October 2015
From the bridge, Michael looks at the abandoned creek below. Amidst the trash, he finds memories of happy days. A broken chair. A yellow rubber duck floating upside down. A once trusted bike that had lost its wheel. And so on.
The place is a reminder that everything in this life has an expiration date. All the good things must come to an end. But, if there’s any consolation, all the bad things don’t last either.
Without much further ado, he throws his briefcase into the mix. He has no need for it now after being fired from his job.
