NOTE: I’m returning to flash fiction after a short vacation I granted myself. It’s good to be back.

Here we are this week sitting near a modern hallway. We’ve gathered in this place today to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers. 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 follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Dale Rogerson. Thanks, Dale.

TRANSPORTED by P.S. Joshi

My ship was badly damaged and I alone had survived. I sent out an SOS and waited to see if any being in the galaxy would come to my rescue.

By the star charts, we were in the Miconian district. I had a small weapon on my person just in case.

I felt myself being transported and saw a hallway ahead. Walking down it, I found a room full of aliens drinking cocktails.

“Oh, Margo what a cute child.”

“Billy Richards, go right back to bed.”

“But Mom I’m not tired.”

Here we are gathered together again to discuss our original stories for the group, Friday Fictioneers. Today we’re gathered in the  virtual sunporch of a rural home near a small lake. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for this group 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 for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Georgia Koch. Thanks Georgia.

THE HAPPY TIMES By P.S. Joshi

I remember the day my ship, The Happy Times, was launched, it was a beautiful day. It had rained that morning. There was some water on the decks, but I, Captain John, and my first mate, Jerry, felt it would probably dry off by noon.

We cast off into the deeper water. It was calm so we decided at noon to prepare and eat our lunch.

When we happened to check below, we noticed a slight leak. Our plans abruptly changed, and we headed for port.

To others it was an old row boat. To us it was The Happy Times
