Flash Fiction Writing Challenge – #FridayFotoFiction – Mercy

His luggage was packed waiting to get in the car.

A life with the young and beautiful Evelyn was waiting.

Dad… dad… are you there? Mom’s not breathing” screamed his 13-year-old.

Call 911 dad, she is not responding

He flipped his phone punching in the three numbers in haste while climbing up the stairs.


I’m co……” the words hung in the air as Rob tripped and fell down the stairs.

As he lay at the bottom of the stairs in a pool of blood memories of years with Jemma and their daughter in this house kept flashing in his mind.

Jemma had forgiven him every time, even when he had slept with her best friend.

She believed in mercy.

And I was leaving her to be with the young girl!

I don’t think there’s any mercy left for me, he thought as he vanished in the darkness.

    What goes around..comes around..! That is karma – No escape from it!
    Your post left me thinking about that little her…”What about her?” and what happened to the mother? Few questions lingering in my head!

    Finally, he get what he deserved. But, what m thinking now is, how would the child do in such a situation. Mom unconscious and father meets with an accident same time. I wish no one comes across such a situation in their lives.
