Here we all are for another week. Today we’ve gathered in a virtual graveyard. Our hostess for this gathering is the talented and gracious author 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 Madison Woods and is a repeat. Thanks, Madison.
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.

TROUBLE IN THE GRAVEYARD by P.S. Joshi
Two men had been sent to the graveyard on a vital assignment.
“Okay, here’s the mausoleum, Charlie. Hand me the stake.” Bill stepped forward and pulled on some gloves. “I’ll open the door.”
Charlie looked confused. ” I thought you had it. What’ll we do?”
It was one hour before dark.
Bill, always a quick thinker, went to the truck and pulled out a roll of barbed wire.
“Alright, here are some gloves. Let’s get started.”
Count Sucksalot rose, opened the mausoleum door, and turned into a bat.
“But what is this, a cage? How dare these people. No respect!”
