The Coming Darkness

(A Carolyn Adventure – More)

Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

The road ahead was ominous, darkness closing in and the sinking sun a hazy light through the fog.  Carolyn was being alert and exceptionally quiet, so different from the last few days.  Since having met Jordan and Billy her life had been nearly transformed from one of depression and no hope to one filled with promise and joy.  Now, half that joy was devastated and not just for her.  Billy had to deal with the loss of his dad and the acceptance of a new mother he had only known for a couple of days.

His hand squeezed hers tightly.
