PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields
‘Mother, let’s clear out this junk.’
‘It’s not junk! Look, there is the mantle clock I bought in 1983, you were only seven then, that’s probably worth a lot of money now! And that tatty blanket was Sam’s favourite. Remember the chaos it caused when we lost in the town centre that day? There would have been many sleepless nights if it wasn’t for that kind-hearted lady who found it. And those slippers are all I have left of Buster, he only peed on them a few times. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure, my mother always said.’
This piece was written for the Friday Fictioneers hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields – Addicted to Purple.
