Welcome to Friday Fictioneers! We are a community of writers from around the world who post 100-word stories every week, based on a photo prompt from Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog.
This week’s photo was taken by fellow writer C.E. Ayr. Thank you, C.E.!

I’d been lost for days in a dense forest. I finally emerged into sunlight, illuminating a snowy white shoreline. Whales frolicked in the crystal waters. It was idyllic! I was filled with a sense of joy and peace.
Then someone called my name….
I awoke in a hospital bed, a nurse checking my vital signs.
“Did someone find me on the beach?”
“Beach? No. You’ve been in a coma for days, ever since your car accident.”
Confused and upset, I slid out of bed and limped to the window.
There, in the mural across the street, was my lost paradise.
