Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re still in rerun modus because Rochelle is busy with her soon-to-be-published new book.
The task of the challenge 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.
“The spacecraft’s always hiding in a dark cloud. You’ll know it when you see it, it looks like…”
“Unlike other clouds… geometrical… And it’s always close to the homing beacon.”
“The red arrow, don’t you see it?”
“You and your imagination.” I laughed and pushed my young brother off the boardwalk. Shrieking and giggling, he splashed into the lake. Billy and his wild stories… But one day he disappeared. Drowned in a flash-flood, they told me. I don’t believe them.
I watch the beacon every day. And now I see it. There is that dark cloud…
While I was looking for a cloudy title, I ran across this fun site where you can finally make everyone see what you see when watching the clouds. I apologize for my sub par artistic skills.
