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.

The house is rumoured to be haunted. That’s why I got it cheap. I don’t believe in ghosts or ghoulies.
Structure’s sound, style’s Victorian; we’re having a blast with renovations until we get to that one painted wall in the basement. ‘Al-fresco,’ Jack declares and wants to preserve it. ‘Old doodles,’ I argue, looking for hammer and chisle. We fight for hours; I bicker, he whines. Then the wall screeches. Our jaws hit the floor when …something… steps through.
“Not Sol III again,” it grumbles, turns on the spot and … dematerializes?
Jack and I both grab our drill hammers.
Three weeks in a row… and work is busier than ever, and I’m doing the NaNo… Hah, that feels good. I’m so glad that I’m back.
