Test Results

This post is written for Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write a complete story with a beginning, middle and end in 100 words or less. My story follows the picture prompt below.

The sun was setting in glorious red and orange colors and the coolness of a spring evening was rising as they drove into the motel parking lot.

The motel tucked between two major chains. From highway 101 you could easily miss the little sign indicating where to turn.

Room 208. Second floor with balcony. Every year for the past 5 years it was their hideaway for a few days. Lazy mornings with the local paper. Afternoon naps. Lingering meals at local restaurants. The perfect escape from their hectic lifes.

Except last year. Last year she received the CT scan results.
