Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge – David’s Photo



David’s memory was put up in the living room. After the birth of the triplets, he was moved into their dad’s study. As the children grew, he was relegated to the cupboard deep inside. He heard the kids coo, crawl, walk and then speak their first words. David wanted to see his sisters and brother play. He wished to hear his mother’s voice. No one had said his name for the past 3 years. Though he wanted it to be this way, he still felt a sense of loss. Had he survived, he would have been 5 years old.

This was written for the Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge. Thank you, Charli.

  1. I knew a woman who miscarried…. there is also a local group who allows for the grief and memory of such losses – giving those named a memory. It is also hard when there is suicide… hard to talk about and remember the good. Even illness… for young, adults and elders… hard to see through the eyes that aren’t allowed to see. A unique take 🙂
