Nice to me​et you -Friday Fictioneers


So many immigrants before me; did they all feel the same? The mix of emotions is overwhelming.

I love my husband; I love being his wife, but this move is scary. I am excited to be here, but I am also worried.

Will I be welcomed here? Will I fit in?

I hope I can make friends. I need to learn the language fast; they don’t know mine.

I am scared, not sure what to expect.

My new home, my new life -there is so much to learn.

“Nice to meet you Miss Liberty! I heard great things about you.”


This 100-word challenge catapulted me back in time. It was fun to write about it -as always- but it also made me a little sad, because I realize how much things have changed.

Anyhow, this is my entry to this week’s Friday Fictioneers. The 100-word challenge is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. It is great fun. Click <<<here>>> and the magic online carpet will transport you.

  1. This is at the same time very personal, and also universal. Similar thoughts would go through the heads of many who are forced to leave their homes. If only all could meet a Miss Liberty. Good story.

    • I saw Miss Liberty years later but still felt overwhelmed by the power of the statue. This part of my story is fiction.

      I do remember very well what I felt so many years ago,when I was sitting on plane.

      I suppose that’s the reason why I feel the urge to speak up now.
