Balanced, precariously (Friday Fictioneers)

‘I don’t think we should see each other anymore.’

Her voice was shaky, hoarse. I could tell she had been crying, even from the other side of the world.

‘There’s just one thing that’ll change my mind. And I’m only going to say it once…’

I pressed the phone tightly to my ear.

A tractor passed laboriously through town, right in front of my eyes. Its diesel engine choked and grumbled as it pushed the rusty machine over the cobblestones. The rattling trailer was overloaded with bales of dry brittle hay, balanced precariously.

‘…so what’s it going to be?’


Friday Fictioneers is a challenge set by Rochelle Fields where writers around the world create 100 word stories inspired by the one image. For more information see: http://wp.me/p2FKsi-wY
