Here we are for another week. Today we’re gathered in a virtual large city near the waterfront. There’s a virtual large building with a lighted dome. Our hostess for this group meeting 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 each 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 C.E. Ayr. Thanks, C.E. We hope your pain has lessened.
To read the other stories by the group members, 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: Science Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
DOME RESTAURANT by P.S. Joshi
John and Louise were seated in the new, popular Dome Restaurant.
“Oh,”–Louise gazed, her eyes wide.–“this is lovely. When was it built?”
“Everyone just says it’s new. That’s it.”–His words spilled out.–“I asked several people. They all said the same.”
“Well, I was curious.”–Louise leaned forward and squeezed his hand.–“It doesn’t matter.”
It was their first anniversary and she didn’t want it spoiled.
“Attention, people of Earth.”–A voice thundered from an overhead speaker. “We will be taking off for Planet X-19 shortly. Fear not. We came in peace.”
The restaurant rose.
