Here we are this week sitting in a room with an assortment of objects on a table near the window. We’ve gathered again 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 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 Janet Webb. Thanks, Janet.
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
WATER PLANT by P.S. Joshi
Sofia discovered the tiny plant on Monday growing between lily pads in the nearby stream. It looked so helpless she took pity on it and brought it inside to continue growing in water in a fish bowl on her windowsill.
On Tuesday, she was amazed to see the roots filled the bowl and the top of the plant rose above as it reached for the sun.
On Wednesday, her neighbor stopped by and found Sofia lifeless, her body covered with thick roots inserted into her.
The local doctor called the agricultural station, locked the house, and hung a DANGER sign.
