Saturday Centus – Wk#107 – Prompt: Photo – 100 words – “Guilt”
It was on the news, “A fire is raging in the mountains. Homes are now under threat. Police suspect the fire was deliberately lit.”
“That makes me angry,” said mom.
“How could someone do that?” added dad.
Stephen and Michael cowered at what they said. They hadn’t meant to start the fire. They were just making a campfire. They tried to put it out but it got away from them. They were scared to tell because they just knew they would be thrown in jail. The guilt was unbearable.
Stephen spoke first, “Mom, we have something bad to tell you.”
