Here we are again this week. Today we’re sitting on benches in front of a virtual shop at the mall. We’re here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s group. Our hostess is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of 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 provided for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Kent Bonham. Thanks, Kent.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the little blue frog in the blue box after clicking on the link. The link for the other stories this week is as follows:
Genre: Speculative Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
BEWARE OF THE DOOR by P.S. Joshi
It was a women’s clothing shop in the mall, but more. In the back was a changing room with a sign saying, “DON’T ENTER.” It only opened for certain people. This was a door to your past. The problem was, when you walked through, the door sealed.
Betty was curious and opened it one afternoon. She found herself in her old bedroom at age fifteen.
Suddenly her mother ran in, blood on her face.
“Quick, hide Betty. Your father is drunk again.”
Suddenly she felt the old fear seize her and noticed her bruises. She ducked down under her bed.
