Here we are once more. Today we’re near a small lake with a large willow tree and some small houses on one side. We’re gathered here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us 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 C.E. Ayr. Thanks, C.E.
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 MAGIC WILLOW by P.S. Joshi
For many years, an old willow tree grew near a small lake. Not everyone knew it was a magic willow. The wizard in one of the houses knew as it was his tree.
When he was in need, he’d go to the willow and make a wish.
There was a problem, though. He had a worthless son who always wanted money. Knowing when he died, his son would misuse the tree he made provisions.
After his death, his son went to the tree and asked for money. Just a few coins appeared.
“That’s all you’re worth,” said the tree.
