Sunday Photo Fiction: Memories Everlasting

148 03 March 20th 2016Their headquarters was located just beyond the woods and this was where they held their regular secret meetings. They had been compromised in the past, so the password was now changed weekly and no one was allowed entry without a badge.

Yesterday the team had proudly solved a case involving the missing teacup and today they were here to discuss the mysterious envelope foundΒ behind the garbage can.

As childhood memories came flooding back, John smiled, standing at the entrance of the now dilapidated shed. They had even managed to save enough money to get the door painted blue (even though Janet insisted on a pink handle, but she was the only girl on their team and was overwhelmingly outvoted, her tears gulped back as according to the rules, no ‘agent’ could cry for more than ten minutes).

“Password!” barked a gruff voice and John twirled around to see Janet standing there with her familiar upturned nose and cheeky grin. In the distance he could see the rest of his friends walking up, grinning broadly.

After a decade of life taking over for all; shifting country, leaving home, settling down… the team of secret agents was finally back together again!

    I love it! I can relate as a former tomboy who was often the only girl in a group of boys growing up. πŸ™‚

    Aw, what a sweet memory for them to share, and what a beautiful dream, to get back together with old friends and feel that fun all over again.

    Sorry, hit the button too soon. Reminded me of my childhood reading ‘The Three Investigator’ books. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Awww, I love this! That is so true – we don’t realize we are making memories, we are just having fun! Great story!

    A lovely story! I used to read ‘The Three Investigators’ books as well and this definitely brings back memories of them. I used to dream about being part of such a group. πŸ™‚

  7. I love it. It reminds me of when I was younger. Very cool story.

    A sweet tale. Love the 10-minute crying limit.

  9. The Voice says:

    Not that your story had a horror vibe to it, but it reminded me of King’s book “It”. The bonding of childhood friends and later reuniting as adults. This was a fun read.
