Here we are another week. This time, we’ve gathered in the kitchen of a home just before Christmas. Our hostess this week, and every week, for this gathering is the gracious and talented artist and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We are the Friday Fictioneers, and 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 provided for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Scott L Vannatter. Thanks, Scott.

Since Rochelle is on a much-deserved vacation trip for a couple weeks, this is a repeat picture prompt. I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a great new 2016 to come.

FLUFFY By P.S. Joshi

Hello, my name is Fluffy. My pets are George and Irene.

We all live happily in a lovely house on Briggston Avenue. They’ve made sure I’m comfortable and well-taken care of. I couldn’t have asked for better pets.

Once a year they put a tree in the living room. On it, they hang lovely balls. At first, I guessed it was for me to play with. However, I soon found out it was supposed to just stand there and look pretty. That’s confusing, but I want to keep them happy. Sometimes, though I take a swing at one.

Don’t tell.

Here we are again another week. We’re gathered this time on a virtual large front porch of a home in a warm part of the country. We’re here to discuss our original stories for the Friday Fictioneer’s group. The hostess for the group is the talented and gracious artist and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The prompt this week was also supplied by her. Thanks again Rochelle. The challenge of this group is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the prompt. Be sure to click on the little blue frog in the blue box to read the other stories.

I remember the large front porch of the house where I was born. It was a magic place.

On rainy days, my friends and I felt protected as we played. There was a woven grass mat on the floor, mats to be let down for protection from sun on a hot day, and a large swing suspended from the ceiling.

On days I played alone, Mom put my small table and a chair out so I could draw or paint.

When I was older, my boyfriend got down on one knee in front of the swing and proposed to me.
