Six Sentence Stories
As she rounded the bend a row of dwellings came into view, and there in the middle was the little house she lived in as a child. She walked faster, faster still then started to run. Her mind began to overflow with memories of playing marbles, hopscotch, and chase; hearing the jingling tune of an ice cream van as it sat across the street and Bobby, next door's cat purring as he softly brushed against her legs
But why was her home boarded up, where was the bright yellow front door, what happened to Mummy's rose bushes, and why did a sign say 'Keep out, condemned’?
She’d returned to her street to relive her memories for it was the only place she’d ever been happy. From the moment she left her life was condemned, for tragedy, sadness, and despair waited around every corner and now it seemed her joyous memories were condemned too.
