Distance – Six Sentence Story

White Blossoms Amid Yellow and Green Leaves

Pete loved giving advice, such as, “After you’ve gone the distance you’ll be surprised at what you’ll find.”

Greg asked him, “Is there something I should worry about once I get there?”

Pete smiled making Greg wonder whether Pete thought he knew something or whether he wanted to tick Greg off like Greg wanted to do to him.

“There’s nothing to worry about should you get there,” Pete clarified.

Greg snorted a forced laugh.

“However, you won’t get there without help and you won’t want that to happen once you’ve realized what you’ve missed.”

Denise offers the prompt word “distance” this this week’s Six Sentence Story.

  1. Pete sounds like the kind of person/character who would relish using an old (and annoying) saying attributed to some obscure mystical sect, ‘If you have to ask the question, you won’t understand the answer.”

  2. I love the photos… even after reading the comment thread, I suspect I missed the meaning of the story. As far as preparing for something in the future, I expect you and I are both preparing for the same glorious 2nd coming and our home-going. Best of the New Year to you, Frank–stay safe and healthy, may God bless you Hugely ❤

    1. Pete may be helping at the moment, but I was imagining Greg as someone who didn’t even want to go there. I suspect that I left too many details out for a coherent story. Thank you!
