Again it’s time for the new Friday Fictioneers weekly story challenge. This weekly challenge is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s to have a beginning, middle, and end, and follow the picture prompt supplied for that week. The hostess for this challenge is the ever gracious and talented author Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week the prompt is a photo supplied by Jennifer Pendergast. Thanks Jennifer.
