Fleeting Moments :: A Drabble

Another day and another drabble, which is a short story of exactly 100 words.

I encourage you to flex your writing muscles and take part. Tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hash-tag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.

.: Fleeting Moments :.

She watched her oldest, a junior, drive away and head back to college.

Remembering words a friend wrote recently, she was left with an empty spot in the driveway and in her heart.*

How did it happen so fast? Pictures from his school years flashed through her mind. Basketball games, band performances and works of art filled a book of memories. She recalled the days of bickering brothers, remembering how the battles aggravated her. Now the house was quiet, the boys were young men and –



Shaking her head back to reality, she smiled. “Happy 7th birthday, Buga’boo.”


* The friend who created the sentiment behind the empty spot in the driveway and the heart was Patti’s January 12th River of Stone.
