The Old Clunker
For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 26 February 2016
“Ethel, it’s time to sell that old clunker gathering dust in the garage,” Jason said. “I need space for my Harley.”
Jason was the son-in-law who moved in to the house with her daughter after her husband passed away.
At first, Ethel thought it was a good idea. Jason was unemployed. She could help them get back on their feet while they kept her company.
Last night, Ethel overheard the son-in-law and daughter talking about selling the house so they could buy a camper.
Late in the afternoon the following day, Ethel went out to gather wild mushrooms for dinner.
