Here we are this week sitting in a room with an assortment of objects on a table near the window. We’ve gathered again 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 Janet Webb. Thanks, Janet.

WATER PLANT by P.S. Joshi

Sofia discovered the tiny plant on Monday growing between lily pads in the nearby stream. It looked so helpless she took pity on it and brought it inside to continue growing in water in a fish bowl on her windowsill.

On Tuesday, she was amazed to see the roots filled the bowl and the top of the plant rose above as it reached for the sun.

On Wednesday, her neighbor stopped by and found Sofia lifeless, her body covered with thick roots inserted into her.

The local doctor called the agricultural station, locked the house, and hung a DANGER sign.

WAITING FOR THE TRAIN by P.S. Joshi

Larry walked into the train station and sat down. He was getting so forgetful these days. Where was he going? How would he know when to get off if he didn’t know his destination?

He could look at his ticket. That was it. He’d check his ticket. Now where had he put his ticket?

He could buy one but he didn’t seem to have money.

He walked to the ticket window. “Pardon me sir. Can I have a train schedule?

I’m sorry, mister. There’s no schedule for this train. It only makes two stops. One’s heaven and t’other’s hell.
