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’s soothing image comes courtesy of my favourite Fictioneer, the ultra-talented Sandra Crook.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.

Puff the Magic Dragon
I wander aimlessly along the beach until I reach the steep path leading upwards.
I am glad of my stout stick, a piece of driftwood shaped like a dragon.
Puff is my favourite song, the one I sing most often to my beloved grandson.
Darkness is now falling and, although I’m not far from the village, the area is deserted.
So I am surprised at the top to see a woman sitting on the seaweed-draped barrier, gazing out to sea.
Without thinking I swing Puff against the back of her head and watch her body tumble into the water below.
