Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Fabulous 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.

Where’s my phone? Cassie thinks as she hears the noise. “Hello? Anybody there?”
“Where are you? Isn’t there some light?”
“Certainly.” A flame erupts from the snout of a large creature.
“Now, now,” the creature says. “I’m not here to eat you. I’m awfully sorry but I can’t converse while spitting fire, as I’m sure you’ll understand when you think about it.”
“I was searching for you. I’ll take you home. Don’t be afraid.”
“You’re a dragon.”
“Very astute. Get on with it.”
Who needs a phone? Cassie thinks as she climbs on the dragon’s back.
I didn’t think I could make it this week. Mountains of work seem to smother my ideas. I dug this out of an old NaNo project and modified it a bit.
And: facebook won’t let me connect to my account there any more. #§$!&##*§ facebook. I never liked it.
