Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
This week Bjorn’s great photo with its fabulous Stop sign reminded me of a conversation I had a couple of weeks ago with Rowena and Varad.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.
Click here to hear the writer read his words:
Hi. My name’s Harry the Hatchet, and I’m an assassin.
The welcome is surprisingly warm.
Especially since Harry is known to several of us.
I remember he chopped up Norrie the Knife’s brother a couple of years back.
Norrie is two seats along, scowling darkly.
But he’s never what you’d call sunny.
Okay, says Bobby the Bullet, anyone like to start?
Bobby runs the group since Bomber Billy blew himself up.
C the Solver, I say, I used to kill for money.
I shoot Harry in the face.
Sorry, I say, sometimes I lapse a bit.
