A Boy Named Jett

JerimiahDoss 001Someday I’d like to write a story about a boy named Jett mainly because I like the name.  It’s a great fictional name.   Don’t you agree?  But I didn’t make it up.  Jett was a real person who dated a relative of mine when they were teenagers.

Years later, my relative attended his funeral.  As she looked into the casket, a tear fell from her eye and landed on his cheek.  She reached down to wipe it off, but a woman stopped her.

“Don’t do that,” she said.  “Jett would have liked it.  He never got over you.”

How’s that for a prologue?  Not only is real life stranger than fiction; sometimes it’s better.

    Hey, Eric. You’re right. Actually, there’s more to this “true” story than meets the eye–nothing sensational, but quite moving. I’ve been thinking about using this as a prologue and making up the rest. A series? Good idea. I’ll give it some thought. Thanks for the encouragement.
