SPRING FLOWERS

Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields @ Addicted to Purple. She has supplied us with a new photo prompt via The Reclining Gentleman To participate simply write a complete story in 100 words or less.
As Rochelle says, make every word count!





SPRING FLOWERS

I plant my favorite flowers in the community garden for all to enjoy. The first to bloom, the cheerful daffodil, with crocuses not far behind, then the tulips, a constant display of color and beauty.

My husband would be unmoved, and yet I can't help but think of him.

George and his girlfriend, Juliet, prepared for a quick escape to Rio, after cleaning out my bank account. Foiled them I did, well, my murderous hearted brother, and me. His handiwork, their downfall.

Now my brother celebrates freedom in Rio and I plant flowers on the grave of George and Juliet.
