Here we are again and this week we’re gathered at a derelict building in a small town. We’ve come together 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 Sandra Crook. Thanks, Sandra.
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.

Genre: Humor Fiction

STILL IN BUSINESS by P.S. Joshi
David Pitstop and his wife, Flora decided to spend their delayed honeymoon in exotic Pashchandra, Redonia.
“Darling, I’ve checked and found great rates at the Raj Hotel there. It has three stars which isn’t perfect but acceptable considering our budget. Here’s a picture.”
Flora observed and agreed it was attractive.
A week later they checked in, two men hefted their baggage, then started up the stairs.
“Is there no lift?” David asked.
One answered, “It’s out of order, Sahib as three of four floors above are gutted during renovation. Luckily, you have a faucet with cold water.”
