#AprilPrompts Day 7 Truth

The truth is Kenzie was certain that her Great Aunt Bess hated her. Even though she had done nothing wrong. The hateful, self righteous wind bag. No one knew how the events of that fateful night would play out. The night that changed all of their lives, forever. The night her Great Uncle Gene and her father’s band had played at the Silver Bullet tavern just outside of Devil Spur, Texas and had a few too many drinks. The night her mother, who had drank sweet iced tea instead, drove them home. Mary Cole drove towards the ranch on the road she’d driven hundreds of times before.It was only an hour drive from the tavern to Circle C Ranch but they never made it back. Coming out of a sharp corner about a mile from the ranch she swerved attempting to miss a deer standing in the road. The deer darted the same direction Mary had turned the car. She hit the deer, the car spun and rolled several times down into a shallow raven…no one survived. The truth is it was an accident.

About Joy Keeney

I love the feeling I get when I put my pencil to the paper to write. I love the sound of the lead as it glides from the tip of the pencil onto the paper below. I'm scared to death of failure....also have a fear of actually succeeding. What a combo....I'm working on them both. I will only fail if I STOP writing! It's okay for me to write something that others will like. I've started to enjoy waiting for the reaction of the person reading my work. If they get goose bumps or reach for a tissue I know I'm on the right track!
