Tragedy : FFfAW – Week of 09-08-2015

Pushing his face flat against the wet window Timmy could still not see much.

He knew that his special friend was in the garden. He had seen him before the torrential rain started falling an hour ago.

Timmy is a special little boy who loves to live in his own dreamworld. He has to amuse himself because he is disabled and can’t really use his legs. His Mum pushed the wheelchair next to the window because she knows he loves to look outside and talk to his friend. “Mum,” shouted Timmy: “ Sandy is outside, he can’t swim. I have to save him!” Timmy opened the window, pushed himself up and out of the window. The rain was pouring down on him. The shock of the sudden wet and cold water prevented Timmy to call out for help.

Ten minutes later Timmy’s mother stood in shock with the body of her son in her arms. She was too late to save him from drowning.

    Oh no it is so sad and tragic. Poor little boy, he didn’t deserve that. It’s heartbreaking but so well written

    Oh, that is so tragic! Very sad but a beautiful story! I enjoyed this story very much but it makes me sad. Thank you for participating in Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers. I hope all the others get a chance to read this. The new challenge for this upcoming week went out about 1.5 hours ago.

      Thank you! I played with the scene since yesterday and then time flew by and I nearly missed out on this one. I really need to start planning earlier but time flies! Thanks for reading, commenting and putting up a new one every week! 🙂
