Making the Rounds – Friday Fictioneers

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means, right?  That’s right!  It’s Friday Fictioneers time!  This week, thanks go to the lovely Na’ama Yehuda, who may or may not know that it is her picture being used this week. 😉  No worries, she’ll find out soon enough, eh?  As always, thanks to Rochelle for hosting this weekly shindig!  If you want to play along, add your link to your own 100-word story by click on the frog below.

For God sakes Emma, did you see what the Richardson’s did to their yard?  They’ve put fake snow and decorated their outside trees.  I’m pretty sure I saw a Christmas tree in their living room window!

Yes, that’s right.  Glad to see your eyes are working

Why the hell for?  It’s July for Christ’s sake.

Their daughter Bessie doesn’t have long with this world and they want her to have one last Christmas.

Oh damn, that is so sad.  I’ve an idea!

What are you doing?

Call the neighbours and put on your coat, hat and mitts, we’re going carolling!

    What a sad story, and yet, the spirit comes through . . to make whatever time Emma has left a memory, something they can all share. You went deep with this one, with a Christmas story in July. Excellent twist on your take.

  2. This reminded me of an episode of Wagon Train that I saw when I was a kid. Robert Fuller (swooon) was the scout for the wagon train where one of the travellers was a terminally ill child, and he scouted off to the mountains to bring back some snow so they could celebrate her last Christmas. God knows how many years ago that was, but there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Lovely, Dale!

  3. I hope the community continues to honour Emma by holding Christmas in July in her memory once she passes. Somehow, though, I have a feeling they will. Hits on all the right spots and notes. Sigh and yes, as I would say as a child, “a good happy cry.”

  4. Interesting the way someone could change from anger or frustration to an act of kindness. I think it would have been kinder to embrace the fun they were having. I guess not everyone likes to see Christmas at other times of the year except December.
    Have a super weekend … stay safe and be well 😷 Blessings 🙏🏻
