WonHundred Word Wednesday: Memories of home

It's Wednesday again, friends! If you are new around here, Wednesday is special because each Wednesday, myself and several other awesome writers post a 100 word story from a prompt. It's fun to see the different directions each story takes all from one simple prompt.

This week's prompt: Most vivid amongst the memories of his hometown

My story:

The sun turned the sky crimson and gold, the autumn air crisp. Though it had been 10 years, he couldn’t have gotten lost if he tried. The small town was exactly as he’d left it.

The empty lot where daily bike races had been held, the market where he had his first job, the tiny car lot where he had purchased his first car. Most vivid amongst the memories of his hometown was the schoolyard where he’d met the cute pig-tailed blonde on the first day of first grade.

He reached across the car and took her hand. “Welcome home.”

  1. So sweet! I loved all the history wrapped in such a small package of 100 words.

  2. Sweet. It shows where they have been and where they choose to be. A lot to do in 100 words.
