WAKE-UP CALL

            Bart slipped into the booth across from Marla. “That was some wedding yesterday.” He clutched the ring in his pocket waiting for the right moment.

            She swished her luxurious hair over her toned shoulders. “Your sister and her groom make an odd couple.”

            “They’re so in love. To think I set ‘em up for laughs—him being such a scrawny runt and her being—”

            “Plump?”

            “I’ve always teased her about it.” Bart hung his head.    

            “I so get it.” Marla giggled. “I’ll have a salad. How about you?”

             Swallowing, he released the ring. “Y’know, I’ve suddenly lost my appetite.”

FIRST DRAFT

            “Can’t you imagine little Harry trying to climb the fig trees?” Ida’s eyes glittered. “He would’ve been three this year.”

            “I miss him, too,” Harvey whispered.

            Although his heart ached with loss, Harvey still counted his blessings. What could such a vibrant woman possibly see in him, a wheelchair bound invalid thirty years her senior?

            “Maybe we’ll have another son. For now we have one hundred twenty acres of prime, undeveloped California land to subdivide.” He brushed a tear from her cheek with a kiss. “What shall we call our little town? Harryville?”

            “Don’t be ridiculous. Let’s call it Hollywood.”

My story follows the prompt and the blue  inLinkz frog. I appreciate  honest comments.

Shalom,

THE OCEAN OF THE LORD

            A winter wind blew across the pond. Trina huddled close to Brian on the bridge as a flock of ducks fought for the breadcrumbs he threw.

            “Remember our wedding?” he asked. “Flowers in your hair. This same park.”

            “Forty-five years ago.” She shivered. “In June.”

            “I read where a pair of swans in England divorced.”

            “I thought they mated for life. What happened?”

            “Failure to breed.”

            “Are you saying you want a divorce because we couldn’t…?” She held her breath.

            He smiled and took her hand. “Let’s go home, my beautiful swan…”

            With love and affection, Trina whispered, “…and practice.”

WHEN THE NEED ARISES

            It starts with a certain look, and you know it’s over. That’s how it is with Annie and me.

            Without saying a word, she tells me what I don’t want to hear. We’ve both suffered too long and she needs to be free.

            As we hike to our favorite mountain spot to say goodbye I envision life without her.

            “Wish you didn’t have to go, Annie.”

            She wags her tail, and feebly licks my hand. I caress her head, press the muzzle of my pistol against it and pull the trigger.

            Whoever said men don’t cry was full of shit.

WELCOME TO FRIDAY FICTIONEERS

As always, writers are encouraged to be as innovative as possible with the prompt and 100 word constraints.

Henry David Thoreau said it best.

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”

THE CHALLENGE:

Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.)

THE KEY:

Make every word count.

THE RULES:

  • Copy your URL to the Linkz collection. You’ll find the tab following the photo prompt. It’s the little white box to the left with the blue froggy guy. Click on it and follow directions. This is the best way to get the most reads and comments.
  • MAKE SURE YOUR LINK IS SPECIFIC TO YOUR FLASH. 
  • While our name implies “fiction only” it’s perfectly Kosher to write a non-fiction piece as long as it meets the challenge of being a complete story in 100 words.
    • ***PLEASE MAKE NOTE IN YOUR BLOG IF YOU PREFER NOT TO RECEIVE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.***
    • REMINDER: This page is “FRIDAY FICTIONEERS CENTRAL” and is NOT the place to promote political or religious views. Also, you are responsible for the content of your story and policing comments on your blog. You have the right to delete any you consider offensive.

    **Please exercise DISCRETION when commenting on a story! Be RESPECTFUL.**

    Should someone have severe or hostile differences of opinion with another person it’s my hope that the involved parties would settle their disputes in private.

  • Like us on Facebook
  • ;) My story follows the photo and link tool. I enjoy honest comments and welcome constructive criticism. :D
  • Shalom,

CHARON’S FIRST MATE

            Dawn broke over the estuary. Marion watched her husband launch his fishing boat and head out to sea.

            She drank in his image, every beloved line and crease. The sunlight reflected off the water and limned his white hair. He waved and smiled.

            In the weeks following, detectives interrogated her.

            “He left? Just like that?”

            “Yes.”

            “Why?”

            “To spare me his suffering.”

            “Admit it. You murdered him for the insurance.”

            “And you got your badge from a Cracker Jack box.”

            They never found his body.

            Marion walks along the beach. Sunlight reflects off a white seagull. She smiles and waves.
