Here we are this week gathered near a spider’s web, a large one. We’ve gathered 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 be inspired by the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Victor and Sarah Potter. Thanks, Victor and Sarah.
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
BEWARE THE WEB by P.S. Joshi
It was broiling outside and frosty in the lounge. George enjoyed this escape from everyday reality, this chance to meet people.
As he stepped up to the bar an exotic fragrance entranced his senses. A beautiful woman now stood close to his left side. Turning to him she produced a Virginia Slims and whispered, “Have you a light?”
He felt like he was floating.
Putting a warm hand on his she repeated, “Do you have a light?”
Coming back to reality he answered, “Sure.” Pulling a Zippo from his pocket he lit her cigarette.
He’d been ensnared.
