Still-Life History

Photo Prompt Credit: Ted Strutz

Jersey ran five miles every morning. He has always enjoyed time alone, in nature. One particular morning, he came across an old vintage car. The hood was up, as if someone needed repairs and was to return with parts. Jersey walked over to the window and peeked inside. There, on the passenger seat, sat a manilla envelope. This wasn’t weathered as if it’s been here awhile. “How strange!” He thought to himself. No sooner did he delicately remove the envelope, Jersey was spooked by a nearby snapping of branches. Forbidden to abandon this discovery, he replaced the findings and jogged his way back home.

Written for Rochelle Wisoff-Fields: Friday Fictioneers (sorry a few days late.) It’s a challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture prompt provided.
