Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.

But I am warm here, my old bones are at ease, and my troubles seem much less important.
At this moment I can hardly remember her face, her hair, her beautiful brown eyes.
Well, I am starting to drift a bit now.
And feeling the effect of the wine.
