Connection – Six Sentence Story

Fall Maple Leaves

Rafael walked home with his daughter, Celia, to bring her back to her mother. Celia told him about Derek, and she wondered how he knew so much about him? Rafael didn’t think he knew much at all.

They climbed the stairs to the second story apartment wondering what Celia’s mother would say or do when she saw her daughter again after two years. The silence of their searching eyes overcame the hardened words and deeds from their memories. Then tears restored their lost connection.


Denise offers the prompt “connection” for this weeek’s Six Sentence Stories. This story continues from Walk – Six Sentence Story.

  3. What a wonderful, complete story of reconciliation told in so few words. ‘ The silence of their searching eyes overcame the hardened words and deeds from their memories.’ Beautiful. ‘We only see well with the heart.’ The Little Prince
