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
THE HALLWAY by P.S. Joshi
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.
