Here we are again and this week we’re gathered near some shelves in a living room. 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 Penny Gadd. Thanks, Penny. 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: Humor/Fantasy Fiction
Word Count: 99 Words
Snake Plant by P.S. Joshi
Mrs. Patrick brought the snake plant into the living room and positioned it on top of the bookcase.
“Michael,” she shouted.
Her son came, dragging his feet.
“There you are. I want to tell you not to touch the new plant. I don’t want any more accidents. This snake plant won’t like being touched.”
Michael gazed at the ugly thing and was sure it curled up. He felt hatred radiate from it.
That afternoon found him staring at it again, sure he heard a voice calling his name. He stepped closer.
A tendril shot out and yanked his hair.
