Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by Jeff Arnold.

I’m sorry, old friend, but this is it.
You are becoming more aggravating with each story.
I ignored your dealings with the gangsters.
I turned a blind eye to your philandering with my lady love.
Teaching her to dance, indeed!
But then, after our last encounter, I ended up in hospital.
I’m the writer, I created you, I can eliminate you whenever I choose.
No, don’t argue, it’s over.
Oh, I don’t know, maybe a heart attack?
Watch where you’re going, Tony!
Looks like the bus to St Tropez is going to be late today.
Just like Tony.
