Here we are all gathered together again this week. We’re now in a dimly-lit restaurant. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for this 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 including 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 herself. Thanks again, Rochelle.

A ROMANTIC DINNER by P.S. Joshi

Dave had taken Myra out for a romantic dinner on their 40th Wedding Anniversary.

“Dave, I can’t read the menu. How am I supposed to order? This might be considered romantic for some, but my eyes are not young anymore. Are these lamps supposed to be the only light or didn’t they pay the bill?”

“Alright, Myra, I guess I’ve made a mistake, but John at the office suggested this place.”

“How old is John?”

“He’s twenty-three.”

“Twenty-three? He’s younger than our kids and I’ve got outfits older than that.”

“Okay, Myra. You’ve made your point.”

THE INVITATION By P.S. Joshi

The elderly movie star Steve had been interviewing all afternoon was a nice guy.

Greg Payton smiled. “Steve, you’ve been so pleasant, why don’t you let me take you to dinner?”

“Thanks, Mr. Payton.”

They drove downtown to a dilapidated building. Weeds were growing up to the door.

“Don’t mind the looks of the place,” Payton said. “I’ve eaten here often.”

He opened the door, and they entered. Inside it was empty with a streaked, stained, dusty floor.

Payton pulled a hunting knife, plunging it into Steve’s chest. He took out a large, strong, plastic bag from his pocket.

I’VE BEEN GONE by P.S. Joshi

Mom took me to a really scary movie. Aliens landed near an observatory.

“Oh, Marie,” she said. “I shouldn’t have taken you to that one. I had no idea it would bother you.”

But she didn’t really understand why I was frightened. Aliens had already contacted me. I didn’t tell her as they’d warned me not to.

We lived in the mountains, and they wanted to land somewhere no one would find them.

“We’ll take you for a ride,” they said.

It sounded exciting.

“I’ll have to be back for dinner,” I answered.

I’m back–forty years later.
