First Line Friday: April 24th, 2020

Dylan Hughes is the host of First Line Friday


It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

Your line for this week is:

Was that a knock?


Was that a knock? It was strange. Who would be v knocking at the cottage door in the middle of the wilderness?

He put his food plate on the table and walked over to the door. Opening it a bit he looked outside. There was an old man dressed in strange clothes. ” Can I come in? I am looking for a kind soul to give me shelter and some food “

Gareth stepped aside. The man came in. He shared food and the roof with him. They had a little conversation and went to sleep.

When Gareth woke up the man was gone, but had left behind his knapsack. Gareth thought that he had stepped out for a while but when he hadn’t come back till nightfall, he took a peek into the knapsack. It had a bag of gold coins in it. There was a note written on a crumpled piece of paper.

“Thank you for trusting and feeding me. A little thank you for you”

A good deed never goes unrewarded!
