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 little frog. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

I Want to Be Your Fantasy. Maybe You Could Be Mine.
Bobby sat very still, his eyes closed as a way of communicating that he didn’t want to be disturbed. He was in another world.
It wasn’t necessary for him to go to a movie theatre or to use a device when he wanted to see a movie. He’d just query the database and ‘see’ it: big screen, surround screen, 3D, you name it.
It was a romantic movie. People touched and kissed.
Bobby knew everything about love. In theory.
Deep inside he felt a hunger rise. Theoretical knowledge had become stale, he wanted more.
But who would kiss a robot?
The title comes from the song ‘Kiss’ by Prince. In his honour–and of course in that of our purple-addicted mastermind–this week’s frog is purple.
