The following photo is the PROMPT. A few of you may recognize it from three years ago, although for most I think it will be new. Due to a current emergency, I’ll be recuperating from oral surgery by the time this post goes live. Next week will also be a repeat to allow more time to visit with out of town guests. So if I don’t answer your comments right away or comment on your story, you’ll know the reason why. Thanks to all of you for your understanding.  

Shalom, Rochelle

I posted the original version of this story May 11, 2012. I’ve taken the liberty of reworking it. The beauty of writing is that there’s always room to grow. If you’d like to read the original click here

Genre: Historical Fiction

Word Count: 100

SLEEPWALK

                   Like a pearl brooch pinned to mottled velvet, the moon shone through a web of tree branches. A desperate voice yelled her name.

                   It was always the same dream. Kanzie would wake with a scream to everyday shadows and feel relieved by her comfortable darkness.

                   Then one night she woke up outside. Mississippi air stuck to her skin like a damp cloak. For the first time in twenty years she saw the trees rustling in the wind. Memories seared her.          

                   Why did white-robed ghosts put that rope around her gentle Daddy’s neck?  His terror-filled eyes drilled her.

                   “Kanzie, don’t look.”
