Julia says, ‘The prompt this week is:
You can take it anywhere you like but only use 100 words.’
Here are mine.
The familiar smell of coach station enveloped me and I pressed my nose against the window hoping to see another self. Nothing. The little belly flutters shifted up a notch, more like a train in a tunnel now. I realised I had to move from my seat, I was last.
There were many black faces in Birmingham coach station, but one stood out.
‘Sis,’ said the big black bear as he wrapped me up. I felt shy as I raised my eyes to meet his, but there was the mirror I’d waited so long for, in the eyes of my newly found brother.

I love this piece Gilly, you said a great deal in only 100 words. Nicely done. 🙂
Such a great picture painted again Gilly. I love the use of all the senses. Big brothers have wonderful hugs!!
This is excellent, Gilly, especially because I experienced a ‘feeling’ at the end. As well, I like the mystery about the newly f.o.u.n.d. brother. I wonder what the story behind that is. 😀
This is such powerful nugget of a tale. Brilliant. You’ve got all the essential short story ingredients in these very few words: a dilemma/mystery, something that changes, a resolution and a hook for yet another tale.
Thanks for sharing this Gilly 🙂
My heart has been touched in so few words, Gilly.
The intense feelings of a final connection are tearfully felt.
Incredible write …. BRAVA !!!!
Ow, this is touchingly written. 🙂
Beautiful and intensely emotional Gilly. I remember the photo you posted for an earlier family challenge..
