Well, it’s been a crazy week. I’m sure you’ve all had them. When you say you’re going to do certain things and then they just don’t happen. That’s how it’s been. I was lucky enough to attend the fabulous Orange County RWA Chapter meeting last Saturday and listen to the amazing Christine Ashworth and Jessica Brody talk. The bonus, I got time with my RWA (Romance Writers of America) and WANA (We Are Not Alone) buds (Tameri, Kate, Jenny, Bethany, and Christine, to name a few). Woo hoo!
When I got home, baby girl got sick. I cuddled and hung with her for the next few days. No blogging or social media. When she finally felt well enough to go back to school, (don’t think she didn’t try to work it. Because if she was too sick to go to school, then she would be too sick for a trip to Disneyland this weekend to celebrate her birthday. She had to fess up to the truth. She loves Minnie Mouse.) I wanted to crawl under the covers and nap for a day ‒ so I did. It was nice. :D That’s why the blogging schedule is off this week. The intended Tuesday post didn’t get out and I’ve decided to post Friday’s a day early. Lucky you! Hehe.
Welcome to another installment of Friday Fictioneers. The goal: write a 100 word fiction (exactly) based on the picture prompt provided. New participates are always encouraged to join in on the fun. Visit Rochelle for future prompts. She’s the one keeping us all organized. She’s also the cool owner of today’s picture. Thank you, Rochelle.
Where: Trinkets & Treasures Curio Shop When: 1916
“Henry, no.” She pushed the crayons towards him. “Play with these. I need to make a quick call. Okay, baby?”
Henry sighed and began to doodle. Grabbing the phone she turned her back on the counter. The curio shop door bell rang. Vivi waved to Mr. Hanshaw. “Be but a moment.”
Call finished, she turned and pulled Henry’s art closer. “Oh no. Why did you scribble on the Bradsworth portrait?” She looked up. “Henry?” No answer.
“Henry? Mr. Hanshaw, have you seen‒”
A sympathetic look. “Vivi, you forget your medicine today? Henry’s been gone five years now.”
