Friday Fictioneer: The Iced Window 

To see the photo that inspired the story below, go to this week’s Friday Fictioneer hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.  You can also add your own 100 word story inspired by the photo prompt.

For the umpteenth time that evening, Peggy donned her thick heavy jacket and went out into the blistering cold to de-ice the window. The fierce winds made the task all but impossible. As hard as it was, it paled in comparison to what her husband must be dealing with out on the highways. She could hope and pray people would have the common sense to stay home on such a miserable day and that her husband would arrive home safe.

“Honey,” Greg called out to hus wife as he removed his service revolver, carefully putting it away. 

This short story is in memory of all the highway patrolmen that daily, good weather and bad, patrol our highways keeping them safe…. Remember, Drive Safe out there!

  1. Good story honoring the highway patrolmen, Taini. I respect all people who have to go out in the depth of winter to do their jobs. My dad was a fireman, and in cold, freezing weather, the water spray from the hoses used to freeze to their clothing. —- Suzanne

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. Firefighters, Paramedics, Law Enforcement Officers, Military all of those have long been considered heroes in my eyes. I am grateful for what they do and the conditions in which they work.
