Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #100


Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

The image below is from artbyrandy at Morguefile.For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows an old man in a lush park setting. He has long white hair and a long white beard and is dressed in back with a guitar hanging around his neck and a bouquet of flowers in one hand.


Matt was always ready for any contingency. Today was no different. Clean clothes and a suit jacket would give him entry into any restaurant. He had flowers with him to cheer up his would-be dinner companions. And the guitar was there to amuse them if they decided to make a picnic of it.

He went to the front door and knocked. The door was opened up by a woman who gave him a beaming smile.

“Come on in Matt. They are just getting ready”

Two boisterous boys ran to welcome their surrogate grandpa.

“Let’s go to the park, Matt. Mom has readied a picnic basket for us”

They went and had a fun-filled day.

Matt had started to visit the children when they lost their father in a road accident. The same accident which cost Matt his left leg.

Now they made a good supper system for each other.
