Friday Fictioneers is sponsored by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The idea is to write a 100 word story with a beginning, middle and end based on the photo prompt.

*It feels good to be back! This week I was drawn to the one object that didn’t make it into the multiple shelves – a loner above all the wonderful, eclectic mix. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things here at FF. Hope you all had a great summer.
I feel heavy. So heavy. You’ve tried and tried to keep me up but I keep sinking back down. The guilt of dragging you down weighs heavy. You don’t deserve to sink with me. No one does. I think I tried to fight it, this darkness. I tried to reach the light that you so easily saw. I don’t have the constitution to see that buoyant beauty. Despite you by my side, despite your tireless encouragement, I feel different. Always isolated. I feel like a rock, sitting atop a plethora of wonder, incapable of fitting in.
