I have not been part of FRIDAY FICTIONEERS for over a year or more. Now life is changing and I am bringing my writing back to the front burner. So here is today’s picture and story.
The Saddest Good Bye
by JE Lillie
Paris was their place, their heart, their secret. Meme and Pepe met after the war. She was a nurse. He was a GI.
I grew up with the picture on their wall and the little love hints they would cast out when they walked by it.
“Remember that night under the Tower, love?” He would say.
“Joe! Not in front of the children!” She would chide saucily.
Meme died last year.
Yesterday I found Paris in the garage. The smashed frame in the trash can. Pepe didn’t remember what had happened.
