Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers
Eric is staring at a picture on his desk. Depicting a luxurious cruise ship called Deutschland. Wet-eyed, cruises into memories when it was about spending his Honey Moon with Jessica.
Eric & Jessica had met in Berlin when both did their PH.D. Immediately they realized that one wonderfully made for each other. Finishing, Jessica flew to N.Y.C. to arrange abeyances and would have returned back to get married.
Everything was arranged, City Hall, Wedding Dinner and a cruise trip to South America onboard Deutschland.
Eric was waiting at the airport of Berlin when a fateful new whispered. Flight 4590 was crushed on takeoff in Paris. No survivors.
