Last FFF: The Time Keeper

This week, I was challenged to write a story in only 100 words.  That’s 10x less than a normal flash fiction.  Here’s what I came up with:

Kade stood in the shadows. It was uncomfortable, but the situation demanded he be outside during the day.
His son was graduating. And while he would never know Kade had been there, it was important for Kade to say goodbye, even if from a far.
“He’ll be alright.”
“I know. And I know I can’t walk in that world anymore.”
“Exactly.  You’re not human. You’re beyond it. You’d only put them at risk.”
Kade took one last look at his former life.
“Goodbye, son.”
He turned around. With the quickness of cat, he turned into one, and rushed away.
