#100WCGU – Wk79 – Prompt: photo – 100 words – “New Friend”

02 Mar

A key, discarded on frost-covered grass. What secrets of the universe wait its turn? What doors to the past can be opened?

I lift the key, cold to touch. A glint of light reflected from dawning sun. Memories of a life, not mine, dance before my eyes. A child grows into a man. A wife and children follow. The children grown, someone loved is lost, loneliness of a man grown old.

A voice awakens my thoughts, “Thanks for finding my key.”

The man is him. He knows what I’ve seen. He smiles. We talk. The key unlocks a new friend.
