Sammy was standing in the cool breeze with her eyes shut. 

Her hair blew across the eyes that she tucked back now and then. 

The grass and the leaves were also celebrating this special day by rustling, "Celebrations!" into her ear. 

She had a dreamy smile as she took a deep inhalation and smelled the flowers that opened and released their floral scents. 

She got the goosebumps as she murmured, "Thanks to my unremembered ancestors who fought for our freedom that I can enjoy this warmth seeping into my skin or else I would be caved somewhere in fear." 


In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about someone unremembered. Is it a momentary lapse or a loss in time? Play with the tone — make it funny, moving, or eerie. Go where the prompt leads you!
