Here we all are for another week. Today we’re standing on the virtual porch of an old Victorian house. There’s a beautiful virtual frosted window in the door. Our hostess for this weekly 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 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 requested by Kent Colby and supplied by Rochelle herself. Thanks, Kent, and Rochelle.

THE MEMORY by P.S. Joshi
Many nights 10-year-old Maggie Wright had a recurring dream. She saw a frosted window in a Victorian door. she had no idea where the house was.
There were holes in her memory. She’d gone to live with her grandmother in Boston when she was three years old and couldn’t remember her parents.
She’d told her grandmother about the dream but the old woman just said, “Some things are better left alone.”
One night she opened the door in her dream. On the floor were the bodies of a man and woman. They’d been shot. Then she remembered.
