The 50-Word Vignette Challenge

50-Word Vignette #46

Prompt: New Family

Will they recognise me? Surely they'll feel the same connection I did when I saw them from a-far. My new family isn't so new after all. The papers from the orphanage are signed and approved, but it makes little difference because in my heart, I know I am going home.

Anybody else like to join in and write their own? Just post it in the comments. All welcome.

Not at all like the usual dark and nasty things I tend to write!

Not knowing what to expect, I assumed nothing.
I was greeted with smiles and encouragement and urged to join it. They knew how I felt: each one of them had been through it before. It was like being adopted and welcomed into a loving new family.
A family of authors.

I know! Not quite sure what's wrong with me ;O)

Although, I confess, there's an undercurrent of 'dark and nasty' in the idea behind the piece (in my head anyway). Does her new family know exactly what they're getting and all that ...

I just can't help myself :O)

I like to think I'm always 'Suitably dark and nasty' - lol!

She could still feel the kiss on her mouth.

You're insane, she told herself. Start a new family, now, here? They still did not know what caused the others to vanish. A baby could vanish as easily, and if not, how could you raise a child among four people alone?

Oo. There's a good story behind this one ...

All the last dozen or so have been from the same story.
