Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 30 Coming Home

Coming Home

Penny sobbed as the plane came into land, returning her son to the land of his birth.

Expecting the worse, the news had come as a shock.

Anticipating it, but never really thinking it would ever happen.

Cablegram read - PEACE declared – I’m coming home soon, Tom.

Everyone cheered as the troops descended from the plane.

I wrote this 55 in honour of Mimi’s Peace Globe movement to carry on the theme.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
