Friday Fictioneers ~~ Jan 31, 2014

Hello people!

Welcome to my blog, my home away from home. No, wait a minute, that should be my ‘other’ home. Because I am home, but on the computer (where I usually am) so this is my other home. Confused yet? No? I’ll have to try harder next time. Ha-ha!

Well, it’s time for some fun Friday Fictioneer time again. I want to thank our hostess who is ever so clever, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, she puts up with all of us every week. If you want to read other great stories just give Rochelle’s name a click and enjoy!

Now on with the show!

Genre: Fiction (100 words)

No one was around, too early for the first shift of workers. Walking  to the back side of the building Margot crouched down and lifted something from the bushes.

As she strode to the left corner of the shop she hit her arm against the building and fell to her knees in pain.

Her bandaged arm was bleeding again where the hand used to be. Biting her lip, she staggered up and continued. They refused her compensation for her loss, said she had been careless. Then they fired her.

A quiet whoosh sounded as she dropped the match on the gas and walked away.

  1. That’ll learn ’em. I mean to say, That will teach them. Whatever. A mean, but sympathetic character, for sure. Root for the underdog, I say.
    I’m not writing this week, but I’d love it if you’d drop by my blog for a second anyway, I posted a big announcement today

      1. Well, if I didn’t…I sure do now!

        And by the way, just so you know. Am updating all sorts of things at the mo and if you get deleted from my ‘following’ of you…it is only temporary. I want to clear everything before properly beginning again. Just wanted to explain that!

  2. Dear Jackie,

    Now that’s workman’s comp at its finest. Well crafted story with a white hot ending. Nice one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    PS I kind of look at Friday Fictioneers as an extended family. I always enjoyed pen pals as a child, now I have upwards of 100. Pretty cool.
