Family Secrets

It’s time for another Friday Fictioneers entry. The challenge is to write a 100-word story in response to a weekly photo prompt chosen by our host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Follow the link to her blog for more information.


It was time to repair the house her parents had left to them. Camille swung her sledge hammer and smashed a hole in the bedroom wall. Keith yanked at the rotted drywall and pulled out a bunch of insulation.

“Hey, Cam, there’s an old photo stuck here between the joists. Looks like Paris. Is that your mother? In a mini-skirt? Who’s the guy with her?”

“It can’t be Mama. She never went anywhere in her life. If she’d ever been to Paris, she’d have told me.”

“Somebody’s written ‘Corinne 1985’ on the back. Looks like she didn’t tell you everything.”
