Here we are this week sitting around in a small-town diner. We’ve gathered here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for this gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us is to write a story with no more than 100 words, not counting 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 Roger Bultot. Thanks, Roger.
To read the other stories by 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
WILL’S DINER by P.S. Joshi
“There’s one main gatherin’ place in Maysville, Ohio. Nope, it’s not the barbershop. It’s Will’s diner. I’m Tom and he was my older brother. He died in 2012 at 93. His grandson, young Brad, runs it now.
Births, deaths, bad accidents, big crimes, fires, new people, you hear it all at Will’s. Randy from the Mayville News drops in every day for the latest goings on.
It was real sad during the Vietnam War. We lost ten young people.
Now I suppose they’ll be talkin’ about me. I lived alone and died last night. They just haven’t found me yet.”
