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


They enjoyed their time together. Sunsets were the highlights of their existence now. His musical career spanned decades. She had first row seats at all the big events. Raising three children while he was on tour wasn’t near as much as a challenge as taking care of him now. She had been his sole support then as she was now. His violin was old and battered but it rested peacefully now upon her old wicker chair.  

The violin began to play. She stood up and stretched. It was time to go inside. The sun sank below the horizon.


  1. I like the idea of a loving partnership to the very end. As exciting as his skill made her life in their younger days, taking care of someone who is now helpless is a labor of love. Interesting story.
