Here we are for aother week, gathered today in a virtual warm house, sheltered from the cold weather that’s frosted the window panes. We’re here as the Friday Fictioneers to discuss our original stories for this week. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for this group 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 Marie Gail Stratford. Thank’s Marie Gail.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the little blue frog in the blue box.

JACK’S VISIT By P.S. Joshi
Billy, age five, was listening intently to his dad.
“Yes, every winter Jack Frost comes and paints the icy crystals onto the window panes.” His dad demonstrated painting.
Billy had seen the frosty patterns on the windows, and it made perfect sense.
His mother said, “Steve, are you telling fairy stories again to him? He’ll be so disappointed when he finds out what really happens. Oh, I need you to repaint the window trim. It’s looking worn.”
Steve got out the brushes and laid them near the window.
Billy saw them the next morning. “Dad, Jack came! See his brushes.”
