Friday Fictioneers – Transference

PHOTO PROMPT © Na’ama Yehuda

She is my life. She gives me life. It’s us against the world. They hate her. Just like they hated mummy. But they won’t drive her to her death like they did mummy, because now I’m big enough to protect her. Fiercely. They took mummy, but they won’t take her. And, oddly, their threat makes me the man my father couldn’t be.

  2. Events, both positive and negative, a child encounters end up shaping their life. Hope this one’s ‘strength’ doesn’t manifest into something unfortunate as he grows up.
