Here we are for another week. This week, we’re gathered high in the virtual mountains near a virtual dam. Our guide and hostess for this trip and gathering is the gracious and talented artist and author, Rocehlle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers, and the challenge for each of us in the group is to write an original 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 provided by Dale Rogerson. Thanks, Dale.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box. The link for the other stories this week is as follows:
Genre: Realistic Fiction

THE DAM by P.S. Joshi
We lived in a beautiful valley in the mountains. A clean stream flowed through it. Our ancestors lived there many years before us, and built our homes.
One day important men came and told us a dam was needed. They said they wanted our valley, and would give us other good land to live on and farm.
Our valley and village are now far under water. We are living in a new village built by us. The land is not good for farming.
Water from the dam is sent by pipes to the city.
No one can help us now.
