Friday’s 55 Fiction : Requiem for a Dream

55 Fiction is a form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.


Requiem for a Dream

A tear rolled down her cheek, as she covered her son. He had cried himself to sleep. She tried to explain rationally, hugged him lovingly and then rebuked him sternly.
He remained adamant.
She understood his pain.
She had to move on. And leave the pain of betrayal behind.
Being a single mother is tough.
