FIVE SENTENCE FICTION STORY - HARVEST
FIVE SENTENCE FICTION
Lillie's Word Prompt: HARVEST
She sways back and forth on the porch swing and keenly watches as the rusty, yellow school bus unloads forty-five handsome, bronzed, husky teenage boys and men. Recruited every year from the LeHigh Valley, Pennsylvania coal mines, these young hunks are driven upstate New York to harvest her father's vast soy fields and apple orchard. Her heart pounds hard and skips beats until the last one steps down. Once again, he does not appear. It's now three years since he's seen his son.
