Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. There’ve been reruns of old prompts for a few weeks now, which is a nice break for the ‘founder-fictioneers’ because they can re-post their old stories. Newcomers like me get an interesting glimpse into the Friday Fictioneers’ past. The reason for the reruns is Rochelle’s third book, As One Must, One Can, which has a deadline in July.
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.
“Who threw the trolleys into the lake?”
“The elves did.”
“Elves? You’re having me on.”
“The trolleys’ mirror images are portals. But that’s a secret.”
“Portals? To where?”
“To Elfland, where else?”
“Elfland, huh? Portals… You’re a bloody liar and an idiot, Jimmy.”
Ruby stuck her nose up in the air and stormed away. Jimmy shrugged, took off his boots and stepped into the water. When he reached the nearest trolley, he disappeared.
“Jimmy! How nice to see you again.” Puck smiled. “Come on, Titania is throwing a party.”
“Who needs Ruby?” Jimmy thought, a happy grin splitting his face.
(100 words) Look Ma, no politics… 😉
