We’re here another week, gathered in a small virtual cafe in a foreign city. Water is the subject as this is a group from the Friday Fictioneers, and we’ll be discussing 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 us 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 some years ago by Madison Woods. Thanks again. Madison.

MONSOON by P.S. Joshi
Ruth was a teacher, so the only time she could take a trip to India to study yoga at a famous institute, was in summer. “How fascinating,” said family and friends.
Monsoon begins sometime in June and ends in September. The exact day she stepped off the plane, it poured down as though a plug was pulled in a huge tub overhead.
The clogged street drains were still being cleared as monsoon was about two weeks ahead of the forecasted arrival. Ruth stepped from the taxi and waded into the hotel lobby, stringy, dripping hair hanging down.
“Fascinating,” she mumbled.
