The Things We Lost in the Fire

The firestorm swirled down the mountain of regrets, pausing to devour the last vestige of us. No amount of retardant could stop the advance. All that remained after the battle was ash.

You had used the children as kindling so even they were lost to me, lost to us.

Our sanctuary destroyed, we left the kids adrift in the wake of our transgressions; forever looking for the bits and strands of things that made us a family.

For more Friday Fictioneer’s tales of bits and bobs and flotsam go here.

    1. I can see that. I was thinking as the children as fuel to fan the anger but of course children are often physically harmed as well. That adds another layer for sure. I know that if anyone had tried to harm my children then I would have “brought the fire” myself. Thanks Björn.
