My truth. My life.

I will find you




I found some old pictures in a box that my momma kept her closet.  She’d be mad at me if she knew I was in there.  I stayed away from anything that looked like it might be something I didn’t need to know about.  The box on the top shelf under the hat box that was tucked under the blankets practically fell on me when I opened the door. It wasn’t my fault that I had to open it.

The first picture I saw was momma, daddy, and two babies. That’s the day I started the search for my sister.

  3. NIce! And almost has a spooky quality to it. The box throwing itself at her…sorta.

  4. I visualised this. So much information in a single paragraph.

  5. That was brilliant

  6. Sure, the box just fell on her … lol I was expecting something this time, getting familiar with how you love to surprise us, but I guessed wrong. Wasn’t expecting a sister. Amazing 97 words! All of your little shorts offer so many possibilities for expansion. If I wrote fiction, I’d be going NUTS!!! 🙂
