Another week went by and it’s time again for Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers.
The rules: 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.

My dear old car! Remember how we went places together? Flying, always flying high! Those were the days.
Remember when I met him? My longing burnt so hot that I gave up everything for him: family, friends, my old life, even my magic. I kept you, dear friend, as keepsake.
Now we’re both old, and our bodies aren’t what they used to be. He left me for a newer model long ago. I’m stuck in this cold, colourless world. Only when I sit with you can we fly again—in my dreams. Maybe I’ll just sit here, with you, forever.
I don’t know where the idea of flying vehicles originated. Ian Fleming described one in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, J.K. Rowling describes a flying car in Harry Potter, the movie Nanny McPhee 2 has a flying motorcycle… so, no idea who first thought it, but it’s definitely not my idea. The rest of the story is, though. 🙂
