Here we are again and this week we’re gathered on a street in Jerusalem. 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 Rochelle. Thanks, Rochelle. To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link below, then on the smiling frog. Next, follow the given directions.

Like Ruth by P.S. Joshi
Doris, her husband, and their small son had lived with her mother-in-law Marion for several years. Now John had been killed in an accident and her job wasn’t bringing in enough money. One day Marion came to her.
“Doris, my widowed brother in Chicago would like to have us come and live with him. He has a large house and is lonesome all alone.”
Doris thought of the story of Ruth and Naomi in her Bible.
For, where you go, there I shall go, where you live, there I shall live…
She hugged Marion.
“Yes, Mom, we’ll go with you.”
Some of the Friday Fictioneers were curious about my daughter’s wedding. I’m enclosing photos taken at the wedding reception.
Sayjal also recently got a part in the popular weekly serial “Empire”. She’s not in every episode but was in the first one and recently in a fourth one. She plays the part of an agent for the main character Cookie Lyons played by the movie and TV star Taraji P. Henson. For those of you who receive my Facebook page, there is an Instagram scene on it. If you click on the scene, it will take you to the Instagram location for EmpireFox where you can click again and watch the scene. Thanks for the interest, Suzanne.
