I hope you are well and ready for some more Flash Fiction. As always, we are given our photo prompt by our wonderful Friday Fictioneer leader, Rochelle . The rules are to write a story in 100 words, using the photo prompt as inspiration. This week I’m trying something slightly different…there is another part of this story to read and it is happening at exactly the same time as this I’ll Be Waiting For You.
So here is my attempt for this week. I hope you enjoy it.

Waiting For You.
I fidget on the blue metal seats, designed for discomfort.
A middle-aged couple rush through the doors and straight to the desk.
She’s crying as they are led away.
I follow and watch as they disappear through the pale green curtains of bay two.
‘Are you ok?’
Startled, I stepped back.
Faded grey eyes stare up at me, as I took in her white curled hair and small features. She smiled at me.
‘I’m just waiting.’
She nods, “I know.”
There’s a burst of activity in bay four.
‘Stand clear.’ A deep voice hollered.
My boyfriend steps through the curtains of bay four.
He sweeps me into his arms.
“I thought I’d lost you…the crash, I’m so sorry.”
“It wasn’t your fault.”I glance towards bay three as Chris tenses in my arms.
That can’t be right, he’d said she was…
The old woman walks towards us, her smile lighting up her wrinkled face,“now that you’re both here, shall we go?”
“All will be explained when we get there Mia.” She takes Chris’s hand in hers.
My Grandad steps out of bay three. My mouth hangs open in shock.
I remember the last time I saw him…just before he died.
He winks at me,“you’ll see.”
