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 the lady herself.

Good and Evil
Our faces reveal much about our lives.
And how we have lived them.
Much of life revolves around the conflict between good and evil.
Evil tends to approach us with a smile of complicity.
It tries always to seduce with the temptation that this way is more fun.
Good, on the other hand, usually appears with a serious, honest face, urging us in all sincerity to do the right thing.
Telling us virtue is its own reward.
Our faces, I believe, reflect our choices.
People often remark on my cheerful, smiling countenance.
Well, arsenic in her sugar brightens my day.
