Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
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.

Dreams of Dancing
The looters always overlook panic rooms and bunkers. She, on the other hand, knows where to look. This bunker’s gold. There’s canned meat, crackers, even wine. And shoes.
The high heels are the only ones that fit but she’ll take the others, too. She’ll trade them—for her life or other things. But these heels… not great for walking.
Maybe if she cuts them off ? No, the shoes are too pretty. She’ll just leave them here to look at during supper. Later, when the wine’s soft fire rolls over her tongue, she dreams of a time when people danced.
Last week was pure madness at work, I had to skip the challenge. This week’s better, I have the week off. If I disappear for a bit in the near future, it’s because of work being too demanding. But I’ll be back. I miss you people, even if I’m only gone for a week.
