Grasping for…?

A photo is the perfect prompt for writing because it often makes you feel or think. What is the first thought you have when viewing this image?

In my mind, it initially spoke of loss and comfort. However, upon further reflection, I’m not sure the left arm matches the person on the left. The shirt is black, after all. I imagine there is a third person. Perhaps instead of a comforting grip, it is one of reconciliation. The more I stare, the more I notice the little things.

So what’s the writing prompt from this photo? Start your story with this scene, filling in your own details!
