50 Word Story: “Reckoning Tree”

Aside Posted on Updated on

For years, an ancient oak tree stood in front of Tribekean’s household, hiding an already clandestine family. Not until a sunshine December 1989 day did the tree snap to reveal a darkness never seen before by mankind. No records detailing the day remain. Historian hands lock up attempting to scribble it down.

Prompt: Fifty

    Is there any mystery behind it? Are you sure that they can sort it out?

      Of course there is mystery behind it. No one knows exactly what actions of the family set the chain of events off. Some trace it to relatives long dead, others to relatives long alive and wallowing in the regret of younger deeds. Evil like that cannot be sorted out. It can only be tucked away.
