Uncrossed Bridges

I'm too old to start again

What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. Calder is back!

On to the new chapter!

Calder slouched against the bridge’s wood, impatiently tapping his fingers. She was late.

“Interesting definition of alone.” Her voice was more worn than he recalled.

Calder glance at Sorrell. “He can’t hear over there. Couldn’t have prevented them attacking?”

Perdyn leaned over the railing pushing into his view. Her hair had silvered and face wrinkled. Too few were from laughter. “I got through your door.”

Calder scoffed and waved his arm. “We seem outdoors.”

Shaking her head, Perdyn leaned against his arm. “We need you back, Calder.”

“Stop.” He turned away. “The boy already tried. I’m too old to start again.”

Don’t forget to read the other’s takes on the prompt. More stories go up throughout the day. Be sure to check our page on Facebook for updates as everything becomes available: WonHundred Words.
