It’s time for Friday Fictioneers, when writers from around the world post 100-word stories based on a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog.

The neighbor’s tree is down. Took the electric line down with it.
As evening comes, I’m reading my Kindle in a dark family room. I light the oil lamps. Spooky atmosphere complete. Isn’t this how teen horror movies start?
Quarter-size hail plops on the roof. I long for conversation with someone other than the electric company, but don’t want to drain the battery in my iPhone. Damn.
Bang. Bang. Bang.
Someone’s breaking in. Or out. What part of the teen movie is this???
Bang. Bang. Bang. Bang.
Oh. Right. I grab the window. Slam it shut.
