Smorgasbord Short Stories – Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction – White Washing by Sally Cronin

Time to respond to this week’s Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge by Charli Mills This week, Charli has asked us for 99 words, no more no less… on the subject of painting.. I also recommend that you head over and read the post that accompanies the prompt, as always interesting to find out what has been happening this week at the Carrot Ranch.

White Washing by Sally Cronin

One angry brush stroke at a time, the old man painted across the words on his neighbour’s garden gate,

They were a lovely family, who had been kind to him since they been granted asylum three years ago, and moved in next door. Having recently lost his wife he had been lonely, but they invited him in each Sunday for dinner, did his shopping when he was ill and the father often popped around for a chat after work.

The least he could do in return was to white wash over this mean spirited graffiti before they discovered it.
