Fiction: Falling

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Jack was a wealthy man, his wife and he made a lot of money in the stock market, they lived a life of luxury they had everything they wanted, they had two beautiful children, Patricia was ten and Nelson was five.

Patricia wanted to be a physician when she grew up, Nelson was too young to decide what he’d like to be, they were a happy family,money was not a problem and they spent it without thinking of the future.

Then came the big crash of the stock market, Jack’s shares in the stock market started falling, he told his wife, “don’t worry it’s only momentary, things will be fine.”

Jack was glued to the TV watching the prices of his shares going down swiftly, he still hoped it’ll come up when the correction is made, things were not looking good, all of Jack’s shares were taking a big hit,he started to panic, who wouldn’t it meant his life of luxury was coming to an end.

His palatial home, expensive cars, and all the assets he thought was his was taken over by the bank, he was unable to pay the mortgage, he ended up losing everything, he and his family had to leave their house and everything in it!

    Thank you for this post which immediately brought me to remember that wealth is not the things we own.

    All good wishes,
