Here we are for another week. Today we’ve gathered in a virtual train station. 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 for this week and every week is to each write an original story with no more than 100 words, not including the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by J. Hardy Carroll. Thanks, J. Hardy.
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: Speculative Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
WAITING FOR THE TRAIN by P.S. Joshi
Larry walked into the train station and sat down. He was getting so forgetful these days. Where was he going? How would he know when to get off if he didn’t know his destination?
He could look at his ticket. That was it. He’d check his ticket. Now where had he put his ticket?
He could buy one but he didn’t seem to have money.
He walked to the ticket window. “Pardon me sir. Can I have a train schedule?
I’m sorry, mister. There’s no schedule for this train. It only makes two stops. One’s heaven and t’other’s hell.
