The Message. #FridayFotoFiction

Spread the love


A young man, crying, sat next to the old gentleman on the railway station.

“Are you okay, son?” the old man asked.

“Look at me son; I know things are bad for you right now. You feel lonely and isolated. Trust me, you may be occupied by darkness right now but the light is coming. Good things are on their way.”

“You seem to know a lot about me even though you have never met me.” The youngster rebuked. He noticed the scars across the old man’s arms. Similar to the ones he had given himself. “How did you get those?” he asked.

“Oh these are battle scars, from when I fought.” He replied. “I’ll have to leave right now but just remember talk to someone, or everyone maybe.”

The old man walked as the clock hit 5:09. He needed to get back now, back to his present.

The time traveler had delivered his message.

Awesome message for people who are depressed. Talk to someone.. anyone. Yes but only if they would realise what they are going through.
Neat take on prompt.

    Thank you! The advice to talk to everyone was about talking about it publicly. Something I did about 10 months back

      I am sure somebody would have surely benefitted from that talk. A great effort I must say. Kudos!👍

Oh never saw the time traveller coming! Thought it must be kind of hallucination or may be the positive self talking to the young man.
Hooked till the end…

    Thank you! The best time traveller is the one you don’t see coming. This time traveller was meeting his past self. ☺️
