I kept that jar of dead batteries Dempster sent me in my purse. It was a constant reminder to be cautious. Brogan and I were spending the day Halifax. We visited the water front, rode the Harbor Hopper and were visiting the Citadel when I knew I had to get rid of that dead weight. I threw that jar into the nearest trash can.
“Why did that, mum?”
“Because, sweetie. Those batteries weren’t working just like hiding from daddy isn’t working.”
“Does that mean we’re going back?” I heard the terror in his voice.
“Of course not.” Hugging him tight, I felt the sun warm us and I knew what I had to do.
This is a continuation of an experiment. It’s hard to believe this is the 10th week! Each week there is a 100 word short story photo prompt challenge posed by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. My challenge to myself is to connect these photos into one seamless story. Click the blue frog to read other stories inspired by this photo.
