Here we are another week. This time we’re gathered at a virtual sidewalk cafe where there’s a virtual sewer grate nearby. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented artist and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers, and the challenge this week, and every week, is for each of us 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 C.E. Ayr. Thanks, C.E.
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:
JUST A NOTE: If anyone is trying to find my Facebook page and types in “Suzanne Joshi”, when you click on the Google link, you’ll get a FB page, but for another Suzanne Joshi. Just find my tiny picture on the heading at top and click on it. You’ll then get my page. It seems the other Suzanne Joshi is deceased as her page is remembering her. As you all know, I’m still alive, at least as far as I know.
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE MISSING SHOE By P.S. Joshi
When we were young, Mom used to take us in the car with her shopping when Dad was at work. I especially remember one time when it was a problem.
“Listen, you girls,” Mom said, “I don’t want to be bothered until we get to the store. Both of you see if you can keep the baby entertained and quiet. He’s in his car seat so can’t get into trouble. See if you can find my good shoes back there.”
At the store, Mom parked and asked for the shoes.
Marion said, “I’m sorry, Mom, the baby threw one out.”
