The Accident

Prompt courtesy of Lillie McFerrin‘s Five  Sentence Fiction.

He wasn’t the same after the accident.

He read a bunch of books about how to deal with the trauma, how to move on, how to forgive yourself. The covers all had pictures of the authors wearing big, bright smiles. He thought they might help him.

They didn’t.

One thought on “The Accident

  1. How sad. I like how you leave it open to interpretation as to whether he was the victim or the cause of the accident. Either way, the trauma is very well expressed. Good job! I took more of a comic turn on this one.
