Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

A quote: “Every one goes astray, but the least imprudent are they who repent the soonest.” ~~ Voltaire

I’ll start with a story …

******************************

“Sweet Jesus, Vic, now we’re lost!”

“Shutup, Stacy.”

“Shortcut, my ass.”

“Shut-the-fuck-up.”

They glared at each other over the hood of the car.

“Where the hell is everyone?”

Even the gathering dusk couldn’t hide the griminess of the town.

Vic noticed her first. She stood across the street, as tattered and dirty as her surroundings, cradling a doll. “Hey! Little girl!”

He crossed to her and kneeled, “Can you tell us …?”

She smiled and leaned in, as if to whisper in Vic’s ear.

And Stacy’s screams echoed down the street as the blood appeared and the little girl fed.

******************************

Now, it’s your turn.

    Hold on to that doll, Little Girl. It is all you have.
    Your father has gone away. Your mother works long hours. You have little to eat. Your apartment is cold. You sleep on a mattress on the floor. You have no friends. The world is a cruel place.
    But hold on to that doll, Little Girl. It shows that you care.
    It shows that you are capable of loving.
    Let love guide you. Do not despair.
    Your mother loves you, but can’t show it.
    Someday, someone else will love you.
    And he will give you someone else to love.
