Friday Fictioneers: Giant’s Watch

I haven’t been able to come out and play with authors of Friday Fictioneers for the last few months. Today though I find myself with a wee bit of spare time so I thought I would share 100 words or so on Rochelle’s weekly photo prompt post.

YOU CAN FIND SOMEWHERE AROUND A HUNDRED OTHER STORIES FROM THIS PROMPT BY CLICKING HERE.

Here is the photo and my story follows.

Giant’s Watch

by Je Lillie

I am six.

Daddy says I am the man of the house now.

“He is off to war.” Mommy says.

Grammy says, Mommy shouldn’t say things like that.

“Little ears don’t need to hear too much truth.” Grammy says.

I watch as Daddy’s car drives away. They always send a big black car for him.

I stand in the place behind what Mommy calls the Giant’s Watch.

No one can see me there and that is good. Daddy says men don’t cry but I think sometimes they do.

I cry because Grammy is right. Truth is bigger than giants.

  1. Thanks for following my blog! I’ve got a special blog I’m publishing right now that I’ve dedicated to you, pastor. It is about my success in self-publishing some books. I don’t know how far along you are in publishing your book, The Remember Man, but maybe you will get some ideas from this blog. God bless you!
