I’m early again! It’s almost 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. This week’s photo is by Janet Webb.
As always, I encourage you to read other Friday Fictioneers’ work by clicking the link that appears below my story. Enjoy!
