FFfAW – My Friend Jake

I remember the wind blowing through my hair as I rode my horse along Wonder Bay Beach. The salty air clung to my nostrils as I breathed in the misty air. My horse galloped along the sandy beach as I laughed at the feel of complete freedom. Jake was by my side on his horse and we found ourselves racing to the end. The seagulls called in the air and we enjoyed the privacy of the beach to ourselves.

This memory is engraved into my mind. Jake left for war one week after this and I never saw him again.

FFfAW-The Field

Christina Osgood was murdered one year ago on this exact day and we have been looking for her body ever since. How did we know we had a murder since her body hadn't been found?

Taylor Windsworth wrote a letter to the local police stating that he had murdered Christina because she wouldn't date him. He killed himself after he wrote the letter and didn't say where he had placed her body.

Today our worst fears were confirmed, we finally found her body in a field off of Highway 110. Her body will now come home for eternal rest.

FFfAW-Running as Fast as I Can

The other night I was walking home from my friend's house when I saw a white van driving down the street very slowly. Immediately I thought of the news of a white van being seen at which time a young girl was kidnapped. My heart skipped a beat and I began running down the street to my home.

The van sped up as I was running and my heart was beating out of my chest. The fear that I felt was palpable and I just knew I was about to be kidnapped too.

Suddenly, the van pulled up beside me and I tried to run even faster, when a voice from the van said,

“Young lady, which way is it to Main Street?”

I didn't turn and look, instead I pointed my finger in the other direction, and picked up my speed.

The van turned around and drove off in that direction and I was finally home safe and sound.

FFfAW-The Green Planet

When they landed on the planet, Nesbulia, they noticed that green cocoon looking things hung everywhere they could see.

“Look man, this is really creeping me out. There are all these green cocoon things.” Martin pinched his face as he said it.

Luther stopped suddenly and answered Martin, “Maybe these green cocoon things are their homes.”

Both men proceeded cautiously toward the green cocoons.

Suddenly, a deafening noise sounded and they both stopped in their tracks.

“Who's there?” Demanded a voice from the loud speaker.

“We are friendly people here to meet our planet's neighbors.”

“Stop where you are and go no further!”

Two small men stepped out of the cocoons and walked over to the men.

“We don't have any neighbors.”

The green men reached out their hands in what seemed to be a gesture to shake hands. The men reached out their hands to shake and suddenly they were transformed into inhabitants of green cocoons.

Luther and Martin looked at each other noting that the other had become a beautiful shade of green.”

FFfAW – The Letter

Dear Mother,

I have arrived in India and will begin my journey to see the world. Our first stop was in a small village with only about 400 residents (and I think that included the goats). I was greeted by a lovely couple who are also from America, Anna and Ross. They invited us to stay in their home and cooked us a wonderful meal. I do love Indian food!

I have fallen in love with one of the young men who is on this journey with me. His name is Peter and we are getting married tomorrow. Don't worry mother, you would love him!

Your Loving Daughter,

Emma

FFfAW – Staying Safe

My husband works at the Texaco station near Bangle Bay beach and we only live 3 blocks from there. Because of that my husband could walk to work and leave me with our one and only car to be able to run errands with.

Yesterday, as he was walking to work someone shot at him. He dove into bushes nearby and avoided being hit. Someone up the road from his location was hit and is in the hospital in critical condition.

I will be waking up at 5:00 am from now on and driving him to work.

It's worth it.

FFfAW – Waiting at the Dock

Each day right before sundown I go to the dock and wait for my love that left two years ago on a naval mission.

I wait for several hours and leave once the sun has set, determined to return the next day and wait for his homecoming.

My heart skips a beat when a naval ship comes in and my heart sinks when I learn that it isn't his ship.

I won't give up because I know he will return. My heart assures me that he will return.

I will come to the dock and wait. Wait for my love.
