Here we are this week gathered near a spider’s web, a large one. We’ve gathered to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers 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 Victor and Sarah Potter. Thanks, Victor and Sarah.

BEWARE THE WEB by P.S. Joshi

It was broiling outside and frosty in the lounge. George enjoyed this escape from everyday reality, this chance to meet people.

As he stepped up to the bar an exotic fragrance entranced his senses. A beautiful woman now stood close to his left side. Turning to him she produced a Virginia Slims and whispered, “Have you a light?”

He felt like he was floating.

Putting a warm hand on his she repeated, “Do you have a light?”

Coming back to reality he answered, “Sure.” Pulling a Zippo from his pocket he lit her cigarette.

He’d been ensnared.

Here we are again this week. Today we’re sitting on benches in front of a virtual shop at the mall. We’re here to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s group. Our hostess is the gracious and talented 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 provided for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Kent Bonham. Thanks, Kent.

BEWARE OF THE DOOR by P.S. Joshi

It was a women’s clothing shop in the mall, but more. In the back was a changing room with a sign saying, “DON’T ENTER.” It only opened for certain people. This was a door to your past. The problem was, when you walked through, the door sealed.

Betty was curious and opened it one afternoon. She found herself in her old bedroom at age fifteen.

Suddenly her mother ran in, blood on her face.

“Quick, hide Betty. Your father is drunk again.”

Suddenly she felt the old fear seize her and noticed her bruises. She ducked down under her bed.
