Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. The Challenge – write a one hundred word (plus or minus) story with a beginning, middle, and end inspired by the picture*. The Key – make every word count.

Cliff didn’t speak until he was four years old. He got a new suit to see Santa and after his mom put it on him he grabbed the hanger and wouldn’t let it go. It was then Cliff spoke, finally and fully as if he had been speaking for years.
Cliff took that hanger with him everywhere he went until he left for college. His mom had it framed with his diploma. When Cliff’s own son Jude was still wordless at two years old, he took the hanger from the frame and marveled at the magic when Jude said, “daddy.”
