Here we are again and this week we’re gathered in a park. 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 Linda Kreger. Thanks, Linda. To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link below, then on the smiling frog. Next, follow the given directions.
Genre: Fiction Human Interest
Word Count: 100 Words
Memories by P.S. Joshi
It was the perfect day for sunny memories, cold and rainy. I put more wood on the fireplace grate, slipped into my warmest sweater, and settled in to a cozy, oversized chair.
Instead of remembering, I fell asleep and dreamed.
I was at the last gathering of the family. Mom was in her wheelchair, and we made a game of pushing it.
She laughed as hard as the rest.
The scene changed. We stood around Mom’s grave. One of us was missing.
Oh yes, it was my brother Ben killed in Iraq the year before.
I woke, my face wet.
