Flash Fiction Challenge -March 12

Looking at the older couple in the hawk shop brought tears to my eyes as I overheard them discussing what they could get for the woman’s diamond that she was toying with on her wedding ring finger.

From what I could gather they had just lost their home due to a fire, and had nowhere to go. Selling the diamond was their last hope for somewhere to stay that night and for a bite to eat.


In my heart I wanted to help but didn't want to interfere, afraid that their pride would be shattered. Then I spoke up.
