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 boring link below. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

New town, new job, new colleagues.
Fleur and I hit it off right away. A new friend in this wintry, dull place.
She claims she’s a witch. Who cares? Believe what you want.
“Come, have dinner at my house,” she says.
This is her house? This ramshackle old thing?
The door opens. Closes behind me. The coat-stand takes my parka.
What the …?
She smiles as I look around the spacious living room. Large, high patio doors open up into a sun-kissed garden with roses, and lavender, and birds singing, and bees humming.
A witch, huh? Works for me.
