Above the Clouds

My take on this weeks Friday Fictioneers . . .  And if you haven’t done so already make sure to link up and read what others have come up with.


Jake was a dreamer.  I shouldn’t use past tense.  He’s still alive.  I feel it deep down.  You could find him in the park lying on his blanket looking at those big fluffy cotton ball-like clouds.  He wondered if they were like that on the other side and if they were soft like cotton balls.

I encouraged him to go skydiving.  The one thing I regret most of all.

He still lies on that blanket, looking up at the cotton ball-like clouds and I wonder if he got his answer or if he even dreams anymore.
