It’s Friday! Yippee! Which means it’s time for Friday Fictioneers, a lovely blog hop organised and run by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Each week there’s a picture to use as a prompt for a 100-word piece of flash fiction. Thank you for this week’s prompt Rochelle!
To have a look at the other contributions using this prompt you can go to the list here. I hope you enjoy this week’s stories!
