Friday Fictioneers 100 word Challenge. My 102 word Flash Fiction….. Mr. Merman.
The deck was worn, the planks falling apart but his booths remain. The town folk thought Mrs. Merman was crazy staying out there waiting for a man that wouldn’t return.
Eight years ago, according to police, Mr. Merman pulled off his boots and took his daily swim. He was never seen again.
She was arrested and tried but found innocent of any wrong doing. Many still thought she did something to him. Mrs. Merman contended he went to visit family.
On the anniversary of his disappearance, Mr. Merman walked into town with Mrs. Merman on his arm to everyone’s bewilderment.
Thank you…..Friday Fictioneers
