We’re gathered here again this week. Now we’re sitting on virtual benches across the road from a virtual old deserted building near a downtown area. Our guide and hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented artist and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers, and the challenge this week, and every week, is for each of us to write an original 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 provided by Roger Bultot. Thanks, Roger.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box. The link for the other stories this week is as follows:
Genre: Crime Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
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.
