Friday Fictioneers ~~ Sept 19, 2014

Hello people! Once again it’s time for that world-famous Friday Fictioneers!

Thank you Rochelle, for hosting us every week. You do a most fantastic of jobs!

If you don’t know what FF’s is all about….where you been??? Kidding. Sort of.Β  Anyway, FF is where around 100 people write a 100 word story based on the same picture. It’s a wonderful way of honing your writing craft or just reading some great writers. Either way click on Rochelle’s name and it will take you to her blog. That’s where you can read her amazing stories every week, or you can scroll down till you meet the blue critter, click on him and be taken to a land of many stories. Or even better join us!

If my story today is bit odd, I blame it on meds I’m taking for a toothache. LOL That’s what I’m sticking to.

I been working on placing these stones just so for nigh on 60 years. Old woman Hessa they call me. I be old and my name is Hessa, so I guess it fits.

I was ‘told’ to do this many years ago. A booming voice woke me up one night from a sound sleep.

“Hessa!Β  Make a mighty patchwork of stones on the ground. Work it daily. Pick the best rocks and lay them end to end. You will be rewarded greatly for your faith!”

So I work every day to make this perfect.


I just wish I could understand why the voice sounded like my cousin Will’s.

  1. Oh that Will! That made me chuckle, but I do so hope she didn’t spend her life working because of a practical joke.


  2. Very interesting take on the photo. If it was cousin Wills practical joke. Old Hessa got the last laugh. It kept her body moving and arranging those rocks just so could be very meditative. It could give one purpose.


  3. That would be a lot of stones she laid down. Hessa is dedicated. Perhaps, Will haunts her dreams. Fun, original story! I hope your toothache feels better. Ouch!


  4. Dear Jackie,

    They should call her Gullible Hessa. You made me laugh. From end to end very well done.

    Where there’s a cousin Will there’s no way. πŸ˜‰




  5. Great take on the photo…not a bit odd in my book πŸ™‚ She’s happy and occupied with her patchwork, whoever asked her to build those stones. So good to see you doing the Fictioneers again. Have a great weekend w/o toothache!


  6. You never know, maybe Will was a vessel for a greater being to speak through. Just maybe not a nice one.

    (ps–unless I get a visit from Customs in the next week wanting to know what I am trying to sneak into Canada, you should be getting some mail soon!)


  7. Jackie, Will needs to find a few of those stones in front of his door or in his easy chair. This cruel joke has been going on far too long. Poor woman. Looking on the bright side, she’s been getting good exercise. Well written. I hope you’re feeling better. πŸ™‚ —Susan


  8. Dear Jackie, I think Will is a stinker and it was probably his job, and he pawned it off on Hessa. Oh well – This is excellent Jackie!
    Hope your tooth gets better! Nan πŸ™‚
