“Mrs. Dennis! Mrs. Dennis!” The young woman ran across the street, ignoring the honking horns. Glenda stopped and arranged her face in a smile.
“It’s me, Kerry!”
“Of course, dear. It’s lovely to see you!”
“You were my favorite teacher back in school. The only one who cared.”
Glenda patted her hand in a grandmotherly fashion. “I was only doing my job.”
“No, you did much more than that.” Kerry pulled Glenda into a long hug before departing, blowing her a kiss.
Glenda’s smile disappeared as she headed inside the market. She hoped Kerry hadn’t realized she didn’t remember her.
This is a new flash fiction challenge, Moral Mondays, started by the very talented Nortina at The Lovely Curses. Each prompt will be a lesson or moral that we have to incorporate into a 100-word fable. Not sure if this story is exactly a fable, but I think it does get across the prompt, which is “treat others the way you want to be treated.”
