Dariel's Friday Flash: "Inheritance"

TGIF, and time for another hot flash! A few of us get together every Friday, using a pic chosen by our fearless leaders as inspiration, and write a maximum of 100 words just to tease you and get your juices flowing for the weekend. This week's photo is super cool. Please leave me a comment and check out my friends' teasers when you finish :-)

Inheritance
Thinking back, I’d do it all again. We lost our home and moved into my family’s old tudor mansion in one day. The two-hundred year old place settled a gambling debt and none of our family ever lived there.

Jim left for days while I stayed and tried to make the creepy place more homey. Still reeling from the whole ordeal, I leaned over the kitchen countertop to settle my jangled nerves.

I felt his heat first, gently wiping away my tears.

My breath hitched.

He touched me like Jim never had, never could.

“Who are you?” I whispered.

“Your inheritance.”
