Here we are again. This week we’re in a hallway. I chose to call it a hospital hallway. We’re gathered here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer group. Our hostess is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge this week and every week is to write a 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 Amy Reese. Thanks, Amy.

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


Laura remembered losing consciousness and waking up in the hospital. She’d suffered from a failing heart for several years but refused to worry as it wouldn’t help.

Her family took care she didn’t overtax herself. There was always someone with her day and night. She wasn’t scared and knew one day she’d be reunited with her husband, Thomas, who’d died years before.

There was no one in the room with her. She felt better, so decided to get up and walk down the hallway. Then she saw it, a bright light ahead. Thomas was holding out his hand.

“Come, sweetheart.”

    • Thanks, Russell. I agree. My mother had Alzheimer’s and sadly forgot my dad had died years before. She wondered why he didn’t come visit her. I’m sure she was glad to be reunited. They were married for over 50 years. I’m pleased you loved the story. We hear so many sad things these days. We need some happier thoughts. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne


    • Thanks, Yarnspinnerr. Thank you for the Hindu word for release from the cycle of death and rebirth–salvation. I also hope each of us achieves what we consider eternal peace and happiness. I’m pleased you liked the story. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

    • Thanks, Perry. I don’t think romance as on Earth will be the same in the afterlife. We will all feel a brotherly, sisterly, motherly, fatherly type of love. I’m pleased you liked the story. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne
