FFfAW – My Friend, Jenny

Jenny and I would play in this park and swing on the swings. We would sit across from each other on the teeter tauter together. We didn't have a care in the world.

Suddenly, Jenny became sick and they called it cancer. After many long and very sick months, Jenny died.

The park statue of a little girl with broken arms, reminded me just how much I missed my sweet friend.

Today, I came to this park to play and remember Jenny. With a heavy heart I walked to the swings and there was Jenny waiting for me to swing.

FFfAW – Cloning

Darian and Slade's work was top secret. Their “secret project” was being conducted in the basement of the “Science of Tomorrow” building. Their project was that of cloning a dinosaur.

After years and years of trials and errors, they finally succeeded in cloning a dinosaur using a crocodile. Sure, they had to clone one of the smaller dinosaurs, but it was a dinosaur, nonetheless.

As it grew, they met the problem of where to house it. Should they continue to hide it? If so, how would they hide it? It may not be an offspring of the largest dinosaur but it wasn't the smallest either.

After wading through months and months of red tape and much ado with the government, Darian and Slade finally opened up a Dinosaur Zoo. The two scientists will continue cloning dinosaurs until they have all the Dinosaurs that have ever roamed this planet.

Their work will be funded by this zoo. Their real challenge will be, keeping dinosaurs from getting into the hands of the public for breeding and resale.

FFfAW-The Blue Door

The blue door is inviting. I cautiously knock feeling some apprehension. What will she say when she sees me? Will she recognize me? It's been such a long time. My anxiety begins to build as I wait for her to answer. What if she rejects me?

I hear a small dog barking in the background. I hear someone moving around inside. I knock again, lightly. The television is on, I hear it in the background. Shuffling sounds come nearer to the door. The door creaks open.

I see the aged version of the woman I remember.

“Mamma, is that you?”

FFftPP – Books and Childhood

After their father was injured and no longer able to support the family, Sarah and Jenny were sent to work in the sewing factory. A sad existence for two little girls.

The girls' mother took them to the library once a week so they could choose books to read. They loved to read and read voraciously whenever they got home from work at night.

Through the pages of these wonderful books, the girls lived adventurous lives and went to exciting places. They may have had to grow up fast but they lived their childhoods inside the pages of the books.

FFfAW – Calming the Horses

“What's this, ya'll ain't scared of a little rain and lightning are ya?” Cookie rebukes the horses, “You boys are suppose to be rough n' tough horses not no panty waists.” Just as his voice trailed off he heard howling in the background.

“Oooooooooowwwwww.”

“Oh, I see. You boys ain't 'fraid of no lightning, you just knows there's wolves close by. Now, that's different!”

Taking his pistol, Cookie shoots a few times into the air making the horses even more jittery. The wolves scatter.

Cookie calms the horses and gives them each a carrot.

Just another night on the trail.
