Depending on when you read this, this will be the last of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ Friday Fictioneers of 2015, or the first of 2016.
In any case, Happy New Year to you all.
The task is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.
This week in action again: the Friday Fictioneers Concrit Subgroup.
Let The Sunshine In
My magic has almost destroyed this world. I’ve been more powerful than anyone else: I harnessed the sun.
I was magic incarnate. I shone. Until Kat and her children died. Then, guilt washed over me like a tsunami. If only I’d drowned in that flood.
I didn’t. I’m sorry. There is nothing I can do to make things right again.
But I can bring the smiles back. One drop of the golden potion in each cup of coffee brings a smile to your faces, a long moment of happiness. You all need that now. My Sunshine Café is open for you.
The title is from the musical ‘Hair’, performed by The Fifth Dimension.
