Friday Fictioneers ~~ Dec 20, 2013

What time is it folks? It’s Friday Fictioneers time! I want to thank Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for doing such a wonderful job overseeing all of us. I also want to wish everyone in Friday Fictioneers a wonderful Merry Christmas! Of course I can’t leave out my faithful readers. I want to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and I hope Santa brings you something extra special this year.

I’ve been in Friday Fictioneers about a year now, maybe a tiny bit longer and I have learned so much from these super fantastic writers. It’s been a great time and I look forward to another year with you all!

Now if anyone wants to join us, please do! Just click on Rochelle’s name up yonder and go visit her blog and see the few rules we usually follow. If you just want some great reading, again click on Rochelle’s name, then scroll down till you meet a little blue critter, click on him and take your pick of wonderful stories to read, all based from the same photo. Have fun either way!

THE CHALLENGE:

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

THE KEY:

Make every word count.

Linda looked upon the stained glass dolphin and smiled. Her mind took her back a year ago today.

He was 85, but that didn’t diminish his joy at finally realizing his dream of swimming with the dolphins. He couldn’t do it like he really wanted, just stood in the pool and petted the dolphin. But it was more than enough for him.

Smiling his big dimpled smile he gazed up at his daughter and mouthed, “Thank you!”

Two days later he died. Massive heart attack. He died a happy man. Linda smiled once more as tears flowed, she whispered, “You’re welcome Dad.”

The boots stood on the pier in the early morning sunshine. That’s all that was left of her.

People searched for days, weeks, months and never found a trace of anything else.

It was like she was whisked into nothingness, taken right out of those boots.

 

The night before a multi-million dollar jewel went missing from the museum. The theft happened in the middle of the night by an expert burglar. That morning she disappeared, told her husband she was going for her usual morning hike. Nobody connected the two.

Laying in the sun, sipping a Mai Tai, she hummed, “These boots were made for walking.”

The alley was eerily quiet. Sara checked her cell once more. Yes, this was the place.  Why was it so quiet when the streets on each side were seas of humanity?

Breathing deeply, Sara took the first step inside the alley. Then another, as she listened for voices. There! She heard it! The voice of her son, “Mama!”

She dropped the package in the dark corner as instructed, walked a few more paces and trembled.

From a shadow stepped a man with her son. It was worth any amount to have her son back from the father who stole him.
