I’m jumping back on the short fiction train. The challenge is to write a story based on the picture prompt and keep it to 100 words. A challenge I take to heart. This fun exercise is something I enjoy and hope to continue. New participants are always welcome. Pop on over and meet our amazing and talented organizer, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
Today’s picture prompt is provided by Roger Cohen. Thanks, Roger!
Excited, Neala took a seat as the rest of the group gathered, sitting in a large circle while Papa pulled his instrument from its case.
“Ready?” Papa asked. He stood center.
Chatter rose, hands clasped, creating a large link.
The first note struck, bow against string. The melody began and with it the story whirled around Papa in a wisp of golden ash and dust. Horses rose from the particles and maidens danced.
Neala reached for the magic wonder, pulling free from her mother’s hand.
Everyone continued to travel on the magical story waves but Neala.
