January 14th: Ripped from the headlines

 :

Head to your favorite online news source. Pick an article with a headline that grabs you. Now, write a short story based on the article.

My go-to online news source is Daily Mail and this is the headline I chose:

Wife fighting dementia aged just 39 plans road trip so she can make memories with her husband before hers are ‘taken away’.

Wife fighting dementia

Short Story #12

Pictures.

That was all she had now.

Even on days when she looked at them and couldnโ€™t recall a certain captured moment, she was grateful to have them. Sometimes there were days when she remembered her old life. The one where she skied on the French Alps or danced to flamenco music in Seville. The one where she was daring, outgoing, and willing to socialize.

Those days were gone, but she still had her pictures.

That was all she had now.
