Make America Great Again…?

She always knew it would end this way.  

She had lived her life…so, what of it…?! 

They had been so gentle helping her cross the road.  Their faces kind and their touch kinder. 

Lies!   

They cared nothing for her and she knew it.  They wanted her gone.  Gone and forgotten. 

Inside the boat, she pulled the blanket they had given closer, but it did little to soothe her aching bones. 

Gone? 

Never. 

Her memory would live in all the hearts she had loved.  She smiled at the thought.   

The border patrol boat left the harbor.

    1. The intent was most of her life…as she said she’d lived her life…and commented on all the hearts she had loved while in this particular place…but I guess it’s up for interpretation. 🙂

      1. Oh, I realise that… I guess I was just wondering how long most of her life was 😉 – to, at this point, get shipped out…

  1. What if the native Americans shipped all of us back? That might truly make America great again–at least the environment would be safe, but the casinos would be rather empty. 🙂

    Welcome to FF!
    You’ve given us a great story, beautifully paced and satisfyingly indirect. You keep us in the dark about what’s going on right until your last sentence. Lovely work!
    With best wishes
