Many thanks to my family at Friday Fictioneers. I am still trying to bounce back to life as normal. I haven’t reciprocated or commented, but I promise to be there soon. You’ve always dealt with me more than fairly and I hope to be there soon. ❤💖
Climate change? Firmly no.
A Chinese conspiracy.
We survived that first strike, that Hurricane Laura. Don’t ask me how. Prayers, good living?
We watched water rise, prayed until there was no praying anymore.
Now Hurricane Delta.
“Can’t we leave?” I asked.
Joe’s gaze averted.
I was a kid when Katrina hit, wondered why people didn’t just hightail it, now I know. When you don’t have money, where can you go? We’d been walloped by Laura, Covid-19.
If you don’t have money, there’s no bus fare, no hotels.
Though a ball formed in my throat, I nodded. “We got this.”

When you don’t have money, where can you go? Simple and true
Thank you, Neil. As formerly blind middle class, I had an eye opening experience with Katrina that has stuck with me.
Grim reality for so many.
Many thanks, C.E.! 🙂
The despair is tangible. Bleak and well written.
Thank you so much, Rochelle. (I’m highly complemented as I think you do bleak and well-written extremely well! 🙂 )
With Love Take
i love the positive attitude. 🙂
What I read here is a battering of the human spirit. When the slams keep coming, sometimes it is difficult to do more than a day at a time. I feel such empathy for the characters in your story.
thank you so much. I feel for those who’ve actually had to live this. ❤❤
You’re very welcome, Sascha.
You’ve got this, that’s what I’ve to myself 10 times a day. More positivity to you.
Yep, I think a lot of us are saying this is our day to day lives anymore.
