100WC – Special Prompt #7 – Finn

3 2 1 blast off!!!” shouted Fletcher with his pop. They were pretending to be Astronauts flying through space. Fletcher was a quiet kid. But when it comes to rockets he’s ready to burst, like the fire, spouting out of a rocket ship. 

But soon Fletcher’s grandpa developed Alzheimer’s. Meaning he started thinking things when really they aren’t real. Now in his confused state of mind, he thinks he is once again a captain piloting a rocket through space finding amazing objects. Alas he is only a man at the age of 81 definitely not a captain of a N.A.S.A ship.

  1. Hello Finn,
    I found your story not only well written but dealing with a very important reason for confusion, i.e. Alzheimers. It can happen to some people as they age and can be hard for family and friends to see.
