Here we are together for another week. Our hostess is the  gracious and talented artist  and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Today we’re gathered in her lovely kitchen.  We are 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 Rochelle herself. Thanks again, Rochelle.

To read the other stories from group members, just click on the link below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box. The link for the other stories this week is as follows:

Genre: Speculative Fiction

Word Count: 100 Words


The kitchen is the only room in the house without curtains. I’m all alone since John drowned.

I eat dinner early because the house has been surrounded by fog after dark. Something lurks there.

I hear waves impacting the sea wall. Nearer there’s a low moan.

I loved John, but I didn’t want him to come back to haunt me. He said we’d always be together, but, John, not like this. Please no, John.

The moaning isn’t the worst. There’s the scratching on the door.

This is not the man I knew and loved. Now he’s a monster.

    • Thanks, C.E. I appreciate the praise in likening my work to a professional writer’s. This one even scares me a bit when I read it back. I haven’t read the Monkey’s Paw. If I can get up the courage, I’ll see if I can find it to read. 🙂 — Suzanne


  1. Thanks, Hugmamma. It goes a little further than I’d want also. I watched some of “The Walking Dead” because a friend of my daughters acts in it (the Korean actor), but I had to stop because it started to bother me. My daughter said it gave her nightmares. 🙂 — Suzanne


  2. Really scary story – but sometimes , some Johns change to mosters even without drowning 😦

    Nicely written- I like the way you build up the tension and tie to John drowning at the end.


    • Thanks, Bjorn. You might be right. As with all vampires, she better not invite him in. I didn’t consider vampires, but he might have been bitten before he drowned and he didn’t actually drown. Anything’s possible. 😀 — Suzanne
