Here we are this week standing near a lamppost on a pier. 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 follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Sandra Crook. Thanks, Sandra.
To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.
The link for this week’s stories is as follows:
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE LIGHT OF HER LIFE by P.S. Joshi
Louisa had always been told, “One day the right man will come along.”
No one said what he was supposed to look like.
Then she met George an engineering student at the college. She was sure he was right. It didn’t matter to her that he was black.
Louisa’s parents were older and had different ideas.
Her mother said, “I like George but I’d worry about your children.”
Her father said, “If you marry a black don’t come around here anymore.”
Her father never got to see his grandchildren. Her mother visited often and just loved them.
