Here we all are again for another week. Today we’re gathered in a virtual room with a virtual harpsichord on display. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to each write an original 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 Jan W. Fields. Thanks, Jan.
To read the other stories by the group, 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:

THE MIDNIGHT MELODY By P.S. Joshi
My friend Marge and I had often heard about the haunted Fritzen mansion. We decided to pay a fee and spend the night in residence.
It was said the ghost of Mitzie Ann Fritzen, the unmarried daughter of millionaire Horace Fritzen, had haunted for years since her tragic death of a heart attack as she played her favorite plaintive piece on the harpsichord.
It was a chilly, full-moon night.
We arranged our sleeping bags and waited with trepidation.
At midnight. her spirit appeared and began to play.
We both agreed on one point. Mitzie Ann could have used more lessons.
