Friday Fictioneers: Frankie’s Motorbike




Frankie’s Motorbike

Each day Frankie shined his motorbike. It was his pride and joy. His parents were just glad he had an interest in something. They wished he wouldn’t keep throwing in job after job and go back on the drugs with those friends of his.

At 1am at night, he took the bike out, crashed, died.

The papers reported it as a tragic accident by a speeding 24-year-old male. Only Fr. Williams knew what he had did to a young alter boy many years ago while he told the news it was a tragic day for the whole community.

  1. Dear Lisa,

    Too much of that kind of tragedy. So sad.



    PS “did” or “had done.”

  2. Abhijit Ray says:

    Was Frankie’s antisocial behaviour related to childhood trauma?

  3. Sandra says:

    How very sad. And a depressing reality.

  4. gahlearner says:

    Very timely. A sad story, too close to the truth for comfort.

  5. granonine says:

    Even though this is fiction, still my heart fills with rage at a life ruined by a person you’re supposed to trust. Well written.

  6. Iain Kelly says:

    Nasty sting in the tale of that one. How many of the church-goers keep their faith amazes me sometimes.
