This is my fourth attempt at flash fiction for the Friday Fictioneers. A big shout out to Rochelle @Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple for hosting Friday Fictioneers. The weekly challenge is to write a story based on the photo prompt, provided today by Rochelle. My challenge was to write a complete story in 100 words or less. This entry was exactly 100 words!
