Friday Fictioneers ~~ April 12

I haven’t been around much lately, but I’m here today because I can’t miss my favorite Friday Fictioneers! Come join us or just read some outstanding writing by the various writers who all write a 100 word story about the same picture. Enjoy!

THE KEY:

Make every word count.
