Here we are for another week. Today we’re touring the inside of an old flour mill. 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 provided by Shaktiki Sharma. Thanks, Shaktiki.

THE OLD FLOUR MILL by P.S. Joshi
Mrs. Forest and a couple parents watched as the second-grade class climbed off the school bus.
They were going to see the local Historic Society’s Stop No. 12 on the Biggerstown Historic Tour. It was the old flour mill on Higby Road.
Until it was included on the tour, it had been the home of elderly Mr. Henderson. His grandfather had operated that mill for years until he retired when the Pickwick IGA opened selling bagged flour. The farmers now sold their grain to a huge company with headquarters in Chicago. Mr. Henderson also lived there with his son.
