100 Words on a Saturday - The Shadow of Your Smile

I love these short prompts that force you to make each word count which is what a good writer should do anyhow.

I wrote 100 words exactly. Hooray!


100 Words on Saturday - Write Tribe
Henry looked around the crowded coffee shop. When Claire had suggested they meet, he’d hesitated, even though they’d been Facebook friends for years.

What if she couldn’t get past his disability?

She’d said she’d be wearing a big sunhat with a flower on it.

He searched the room and finally saw her.

“Claire, it’s me Henry,” he called out as he navigated his wheelchair through the cramped aisle.

From underneath the gaudiest hat imaginable, a beautiful woman smiled and his heart raced.

She got to her feet and walked towards his voice, guided by the tapping of her white cane.
