Here we are again and this week we’re gathered at a train station. We’ve come together to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s 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 below, then on the smiling frog. Next, follow the given directions

The Arranged Switch by P.S. Joshi
It was a sunny afternoon. Virginia purchased a train ticket from Philly to Chicago with no trouble.
In her handbag was money Bill had given her. “Take it to Chicago and deposit it in your bank,” he said. “Get it out of Philly.”
“What did you do, pull another heist?”
Bill glared at her. “None of your #*&% business,” he’d muttered. “Do as I say or you’ll be sorry.”
On the train, a serious man sat down in the seat next to her.
“Remember our deal, Agent MacBride.”
She handed him the envelope of money.
