Missing the City
I was going to return to my normal blogging schedule this week, but Linda G. Hill used my prompt for Just Jot January, and I’d feel bad if I ignored it. She wrote a short story from my prompt. Her prompt is “City” and I can make this short and sweet. I miss visiting two cities and I hope to return to each of them this year. Go on, you can guess.
