Friday Fictioneers ~ August 16, 2013

Another Friday Fictioneers is upon us on this hot Friday. My favorite day of the week.

Thanks go out once more to the hostess with the Mostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, she does a fantastic job every week.


Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and an end. (No one will be ostracized for going over or under the word count.)


Make every word count.


If you want to join us please do! There is always room for one more on the list of great authors. If you just like reading, click on Rochelle’s name, scroll down till you meet the little blue critter and click on him. That will take you to many more great stories based on the same photo.

The whole neighborhood heard him that morning, yelling, swearing.

‘Bully of the block’, that’s what everyone called him. A loud mouth bully who frightened the kids and dogs.

It’s strange how his car was the only one on the whole block that got damaged. No other tree was knocked down by last night’s storm except the one that was now on top of his car.

The neighbor across the street smiled as he heard the bully’s yell. His foot shoved the saw a bit further under the table in the garage. It’s surprising what thunder will cover up.

Karma sometimes needed a little help.

  1. Love it. The picture reminded me of a storm we had where everyone parked their cars in the same spot but only the newest car ended up with the tree smashed down upon it.


  2. Our stories are similar and I’ve read a few others of the ‘he got his come-uppance’ type this week. Interesting that the photo has triggered this. I hope your chain saw man gets away with it but I suspect he too have to pay back his karmic debt.:)


  3. Dear Jackie,

    I loved your story. The last line was perfect, as was the feeling I got when I thought about everyone on the street smiling. A well written yarn.




  4. Very charming comeuppance. Karma is not supposed to need any help, but so often we can’t wait for it and sometimes it just doesn’t seem fair. This was lively little tale.
