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.

In fiction, foreshadowing is prevalent. Bad weather predicts bad events, sunny skies illustrate happiness or freedom. In reality, nature couldn’t care less about our feelings.
Today is a glorious day with a wide open sky. Today I left the lab for a long hike; the first hike in three months, months spent with my baby: my little clump of RNA designed just so. Now it’s all grown up and ready for the world: my little airborne super-virus.
Today is the darkest of days for humanity: today we all die.
The planet’s saved. Life will go on. That’s nature’s way.
I’m sorry for such a gloomy story for such a nice picture.
And I want to add that the narrator is a mad person and has nothing to do with me. 🙂 Just so you know…
