Highway Memorial Dedication
Shifting feet in the Texas summer sun, right at the spot on the side of the highway that I'd heard about only a few times, I welled up when the officer told Adam, "...The three things your father was most proud of were being a State Trooper, being an Aggie and being your dad."
I chose the Hint Fiction format because it's a technique I've been trying to explore in my longer form narratives. It's harder to tell longer stories this way, but I've found that I employ this method most with my social media transmissions. My Instagram captions and comments, my Twitter posts, and even over Instant Messenger. It's lyrical and succinct. And it's kind of like rapping. Regret it, nope. Said it, yup.
