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.

With my eyes closed I remember last summer. How we lazed on the patio: you, me, and the kids.
When I open my eyes, I see blackness. The blackness of space is only surpassed by the blackness of my soul.
I killed you and the kids.
They let me choose between execution or The Program. Now I float here, naked in my special suit, with algae in my veins that are supposed to provide the oxygen I need. It worked for the rats in the lab. Out here without light? Not so great. Maybe there wasn’t a choice after all.
Hello! Anyone remember me? It’s been a while… I stared at the pictures every week and nothing came. I began having doubts about ever having an idea again. Too much work, too much going on in my life. Yesterday I had an idea… but my writing feels rusty. But here you have it.
