Submitted for the #55wordchallenge Week 15
For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and our host has been blown away by some of the entries. The rules for participating and past contests can be found at the link above. The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon the following Tuesday. Winners will be posted Wednesday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts. This is my first time participating in this challenge. I have chosen the photograph of the night cyclist for my 55 word story, The Ride of Hope.
Steve had to sell his car to pay for the private detective. Two years ago, the detective and the Facebook page dedicated to finding his sister had many leads which all were dead ends. After a year of silence, Steve road his bicycle on a dark night hoping tonight’s message had been from his sister.
