The Life I Left Behind : ZAPFIC50 | Based on 5 Minute Freewrite (Day1832) | Prompt: immigrants
This microfiction story is for the prompt "immigrant". It reminds me of individuals who are away from their home country for whatever reasons. They may be traveling a short distance or over many miles to reach new destinations. A ZAPFIC50 story is told in exactly 50 words. The challenge was created by @felt.buzz.
I based my 50-word story on @mariannewest's Freewrite prompt: Day 1832: 5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: immigrants. If you'd like to join in from the daily prompts, visit @mariannewest's Profile and view each day's freewrite prompt.
Below is my story.
Walking silently in the cold night, Evan didn't understand why they abandoned their home.
Moisture penetrated vacant soles. Blisters followed.
As ordered, he slowly climbed up the jagged rock. Excruciating pain hindered his progress.
Finally, he peered over the side. Safety beckoned as tents glowed brightly.
He imagined a future.
The screenshot at WORDCOUNTER.net evidences my use of exactly 50 words to create my ZapFic50.
Happy rest of the week everyone with whatever your endeavors.
