Here we are another week gathered together this time in a virtual cafe across from a small town garage. We’re together once more to discuss our original stories for the Friday Fictioneer’s challenge. Our talented and gracious hostess for this gathering is the author and artist Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The weekly challenge is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Claire Fuller. Thanks Claire.
The link for all other stories is as follows:
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE GARAGE By P.S. Joshi
It’s still sitting there closed up. Maybe someday I’ll sell it. It was left to me in the Will so I’ll have to decide. Right now I hurt too much to think about it.
My brother John and his wife set out that sunny day last June on a planned picnic to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. There was little money to celebrate in a grand style.
They only got as far as Fenton’s Hill. A speeder came up over the hill at 90 mph and lost control.
I closed up the garage and it sits there. I’m still hurting.
