Here we are once again. This week we’re in a library basement where there are document lockers. This is the Friday Fictioneers group and we’re here with our guide and hostess, the gracious and talented 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 Claire Fuller. Thanks, Claire.
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:

THE GREAT EDWARDO by P.S. Joshi
Deep underground are lockers. Not ordinary lockers, they’re reinforced steel with special combination locks.
This is the repository for The Great Edwardo’s magic tricks. World famous, he was terrified another magician would steal his secrets.
Over the years he’d inherited, or bought, tricks such as sawing a woman in thirds, disappearing from one box onstage to another, now having different-colored hair and his clothes on backwards, and pulling two-headed blue rabbits out of a hat.
Then he suddenly died ten years ago and no one’s gotten into the lockers since. People wondered if he planned it that way.
