Flash Fiction Friday #13 - Still Here

Sorry I didn't post last week. My life has been full of medical tests, doctors, and exhaustion. It's been an eventful week and we think we found at least one reason for how I've been feeling. The test will be to see if the medication works on controlling my symptoms. My thanks to those who have been sending me positive thoughts, healing energy, and love. I'm so appreciative!

I wasn't sure I'd even be up to writing a flash for this week's prompt. However, the picture reminded me of my life lately and of a real incident that occurred recently. I knew I had to participate. 

It's my 13th Flash Fiction Friday with the Flashers writing group!!! The group is growing and it's awesome.

 Enjoy and please feel free to comment. Thanks! 

Flash Fiction Friday - Writing challenge based on a picture prompt. One picture to inspire one hundred words (no more, no less).

Still Here

He lay her gently on the bed. “What do I do now? Call 9-1-1?” He knew she had a history of fainting episodes, but never witnessed one until today. One minute she'd been hugging him goodbye, the next he heard a thud - out cold on the floor, face ghost-white. “Baby?”

Glazed eyes opened.“It's okay. Remember I told you about this?”

“I know. Yes, yes you did. But what can I do?” He felt helpless. “Want a snack and drink?”

Her hand rested on her heaving breast as she nodded,“y-you're still here,” voice trembling with emotion.


 Love is: When they stay.
