The Artist(for Friday Fictioneers)

The window at the Reichs’s house reminded Garrett of his journey:
Leaving an abusive situation he went to Japan, where he learned calligraphy and painting and spent time in a Zen monastery. The meditation and art helped him to process his situation and form a new plan. He looked anew at the teachings of Christ. He enrolled in classes, where he met Richard Reichs, the son of a prominent businessman. Richard invited Garrett to come over to study with him, but Garrett knew there was something more, that Richard was hurting inside, needed a friend, someone to talk to.


This is a story for Friday Fictioneers by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields , who also provided the photo for the prompt.

  1. Garrett needs to be wary, he risks getting into a new demanding relationship. Could you have used [ he ran ] as the last two words of this story. 🙂

  2. There’s a whole life packed in there. Perhaps there’s too much packed in to be a story because it reads like a synopsis for something to be written, if that makes sense?
