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.
And the prompt photo, which this week is one of my own.
Thank you, m’lady.
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:
I stare at the bookmark.
There are two words written on it.
Two words that mean a lot to me.
But nothing to anyone else.
Or so I have always believed.
The bookmark was inside the book I have in my hand.
A book from the local library.
The library is in a small town in France.
It has a very limited English-language section.
There are very few foreigners here.
I have never met another anglophone.
So I stare at the bookmark.
And the two words.
The two English words that say what I did.
And where I did it.
