Wednesday again, time for a new prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, who could also call themselves Ice Cream Fictioneers if I look at the reviews to last week’s story. ;). The prompt is graciously provided by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields
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.
I’ve been a bad reviewer last week, sorry about that. I’m so busy that I hardly get anything done. And then a story idea hops into my head right away… so what else can you do than quickly write it down before it flutters away? That way at least I’ll have more time to read and review more of your stories this week, dear FF friends. Hopefully…
There, all done. Barbed wire will do it. Nothing else helped.
I haven’t pampered my veggies only to have them stolen every other night. It’s not as if you could go and buy them. Tonight they’ll be safe.
I wake from a scream. Gotcha! Clad in bathrobe and slippers I run outside.
He holds his bleeding leg, sobbing and shame-faced. It’s only a boy: too small, too thin.
“Why did you do it?” My heart melts at his tear-filled eyes.
“Mum’s unwell. Healer said greens help.”
“So they do.” I get a basket. “And tomorrow we’ll pick strawberries.”
