Trust The Memories

Copyright – Sandra Crook

The cyclone took away everything that I had; my family, my house and everything else that I could call mine. When I returned home after a year away, all that was left was a big mess of broken bricks and wood.The pond was plagued with dirt and the entire place looked abandoned. I could have easily turned back and gone away to a better pasture, but the love in my heart refused to let go of me. I decided to trust myself and build everything from scratch again so that the memories of my loved ones could live forever.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Trust' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 12th December 2014.


  1. The trust on yourself can empower you go off the limit, to do what has been considered as impossible. :)

  2. The best thing that we can do is to trust ourselves and not let the opinions of others demotivate us. Nice take on the prompt!

  3. The beauty of this story is that it could be taken both literally and metaphorically. :-)

  4. Belief in intuitions and casting away opinions. It can empower us to do anything... nice one.

  5. There are times when trust and hope get linked with a single strand and this is one such time :)

  6. I m running out of words for you :-(
