This is my story for Friday Fictioneers this week. It’s a weekly challenge to write a story in 100 words with a beginning, middle, and end. It follows the picture prompt provided for that week. It’s hosted by the talented and gracious Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week the photo was also provided by her. Thanks Rochelle.
The Neighbor by P.S. Joshi
I live on Floor Five of the old Ramsey Hill Towers. Every day elderly Mrs. Judson from Floor Four gets on to go for her morning walk, as I’m riding to the basement parking garage. We say, “Hello” and a few words about the weather. She then gets off in the lobby.
This morning she seemed pale and a little confused. She didn’t say anything. I thought about it during the day since it was unusual.
When I came home this evening, my husband said, “Guess what! Mrs. Judson’s son found her last night. She was on the floor dead.”
