Here we all are for another week. Today we’re sitting on virtual folding chairs in the virtual parking lot of a block of flats. Our hostess for this gathering is the talented and gracious writer and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week 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 for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Emmy L Gant. Thanks, Emmy.
To read the other stories by the group, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.
The link for this week’s stories is as follows:
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE DUMPSTER DIVE
My Uncle John is a dumpster diver. He’s found lots of usable stuff. Today he came to the parking lot of our block of flats to dive.
Mom asked me this morning, “Billy, have you seen the dog. He usually eats at this time. Look for him will you?’
Mom worries because our neighbor, Mr. Backus, hates Skipper. He’s threatened us to keep Skipper away from his place.
Uncle John set up his ladder and climbed to dive. He opened the lid, looked, and came back down–quick.
“I think I found Skipper,” he said.
Then he got real sick.
