This is my attempt at merging prompts and linking my posts to form a larger story! 🙂
The chapters in the story may not link sequentially, so will keep updating the sequence.
I hope this experiment goes well!
This story is a prequel to an earlier work. Do read the sequel if you liked this one! 😀
“Can you come here for a second?”
I could hear my wife calling out to me from the porch.
“Do I have to come dear? The match is getting real interesting. We have the lead for the very first time this season.”
My wife had this habit of calling me out to see things that she thought she saw. We were both old now, but I thank God my vision was not as poor as her vision, and that my imagination was not as vivid. Last week she had screamed that she had seen an intruder in our fields. It had turned out to be our own scarecrow. I wasted so much energy running out with my gun.
“Dear, please come.”
I almost got up from the couch, ready to go out. Right at that moment, the score equalized. I could not get up now. My team needed me to sit until the match was over.
“I’ll be right there, dear.”
“I can see bright lights over the hills beyond our fields.”
I had already tuned her voice out.
