Picture by The Storyteller’s Abode.

The scarecrow was all she had left. Ironic that after all these years, the only thing he left her was a tattered thing in her old clothes. Why build a scarecrow so far from any crops crows might conceivably bother. Moreover, who build a scarecrow to guard gate, concrete and hill?

Maybe he had gone mad like they’d said, those men who’d come looking for him.

Ripping off the flower, she torn the scarecrow to shreds, scattering pieces across the damp ground. Taped round the pole was a plastic-wrapped paper.

‘Susan. In the concrete vault behind the scarecrow are accounts set up for you.  Love forever. Mike.’

Now came the tears.

  1. This is bittersweet! She thought she had been left with nothing and he left her with accounts set up behind the scarecrow she thought was worthless! Great story!! I have to apologize to you. When I came in to read your story, it was showing your Friday Fictioneers story and I thought you had linked up the wrong story to FFfAW. Please accept my apology!

  2. That’s okay. I was just confused and wasn’t sure what I’d done. Easy enough to do, but thanks for letting me know I wasn’t going crazy:) And thanks for the kind words.
