Flash Fiction Friday

This is my first submission to this challenge, a 'story' in 55 words exactly.  I can post it here O.K. I'm just not sure about linking up with the leader. But I'll have a go.
( Thanks to Monsoon-Dreams for the Photograph of the old Steps)



He lumbered heavily up the old stone steps, puffing and panting like the old man he was.  Why did she ask him to come up here?  Only a few more steps to go.  Suddenly, there she was -- in her wedding dress!  In the dusk she looked as young as the day they were married.

Love what you did with your 55 words! I just want more... but then I guess that's the idea...leave them wanting more.

Good job!

Oh my. I thought i was at the Church Blog and then read Wanda's "kiss ass" sentence and decided this must be the place.

I like the stone steps. I also like the challenge. And I like your submission for it – about it – and that you entered.
