Here we are for another week. Today we’ve gathered in a virtual train station. Our hostess for this group meeting is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge for this week and every week is to each write an original 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 supplied by J. Hardy Carroll. Thanks, J. Hardy.

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.

WAITING FOR SAILS By P.S. Joshi

We had moved to West Bay in Dorset, a beautiful location.

I soon noticed a middle aged woman climbing to the top of the cliff almost every day the weather permitted.

At first I thought she was just getting exercise, but then became curious. I asked about it in the village.

“Oh, the storekeeper said, “That’s Mrs. Bicton. Her husband went sailing and hasn’t come back. She watches for the sails of his boat to appear.”

“How long ago did he go sailing?” I asked.

“Well,” a clerk said, “It’s been about twenty years now, give or take a few.”
