I’m announcing a new piece of Short Fiction. This 1967 word story is told with character dialog only and should take about 9-10 minutes to read. It was inspired by the latest #WritePhoto prompt from KL Caley .
“So, Trish, this was where you were raised?”
“Yep, it’s been cleaned up a lot and I doubt the owners allow anyone to live here now. They’re all used for small warehousing I think.”
“Wow girl! Humble beginnings and all. How far you’ve come – and with Melvin. I would not have guessed.”
“And Gloria, about Melvin; he was a neighbor living in that last second-story room on the left. He wasn’t a great student but don’t let anyone fool you about him. Many underestimated him but he’ll always be my hero, and my knight in denim armor. . .
A woman brings her friend to visit the run-down alley to a set of apartments where the poorest of families lived and where she was raised to tell her the story of how she met Melvin.
