June 14: Flash Fiction Challenge – Bouquet


June 14, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a bouquet. You can explore the meaning of the word or gather a bunch of flowers. Go where the prompt leads.

She had written me a note about visiting her aging father. He was more spritely than she imaged, so happy to see her but it was clear the years had ravaged him. Living so far away left her feeling desperate to do more for him. But life had intervened, and her hands were tied.

Her note left me in no doubt as to how she felt. She was a beautiful woman full of compassion and love. I bought a bouquet of native resilient blooms designed to lift her spirits and demonstrate how much I loved and cared for her.
