Here we are again this week. Today we’re gathered at a virtual beach to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s group. Our hostess for this gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by C. Hase. Thanks, C.
Congratulations to Jennifer Pendergast and family on their new son and little brother, Dominic.
Also, I’m sorry my story is so late. My computer was in the repair shop for several days.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the little blue frog in the blue box after clicking on the link. The link for the other stories is as follows:
Genre: Speculative Fiction

THERE BE GIANTS by P.S. Joshi
“Dad,” said Sean, “Are there such things as giants?”
“Well son, there were giants once upon a time.”
The child looked puzzled and asked, “I’ve never seen giants. Why is that?”
“Well son, people stopped believing in them so they went away.”
“Where did they go Dad? Is it far from here?”
“Well, Sean, they sailed far away. I don’t know where. Only their boat chain remains.”
“Dad, are we leprechauns?”
“That’s what some people call us, Sean.”
“Will we go away like the giants if people stop believing in us?”
“We might son, if people stop believing. We might.”
