Friday Fictioneers

Friday is such a wonderful day of the week 🙂 Not only because we get another edition of Friday Fictioneers!  But once more we have all followed Rochelle and her photo prompt into adventure. The idea is 100 words based on the photo below –our thanks to Roger Bultot this week. Some of us may have done a little over (raising my hand over here) by all the stories are unique. Make sure to check them out HERE!

                                                                                                                         Black Widow Webs

“What is it?”

Cherri  tried to trace the intricate lines binding the lights together. Her eyes burned, she wished her hands were free to rub them.

“The Web of Stars,” Appyl replied happily. “Pyar over in Metal helped with the design, and Mac in Electrical helped with the lights. I came up with the  spell.”

“You’re going to get an A,” Cherri acknowledged. “Ms. Plum will be ecstatic.”

“I know,” Apply said smugly. “And I left you to the last. I knew you’d appreciate the design. That dark spot, in the center? That’s for you. Your soul will shine the brightest.”

Cherri looked at her roommate helplessly as she approached with the ceremonial knife.

  2. Ouch.. I guess being the only participant Apply’s sure to win…


  3. Whoa! That’s a dark one. Not one you could repeat, though, as they’ll be no students left very soon. Nicely creepy tale Samantha


  4. Wow, great last line twist. Excellent.


  5. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover

    Interesting take on what most people see as a very benign photo.

  6. Creepy! I was wondering if they were part of a witchy school – and if so all the “normal” sounding classes definitely fun. The ending was a surprise though! Nicely sprung.


  7. Yikes! This is delightfully creepy. Well done.

    (you spelled the character’s name two different ways. Appyl and Apply)


  8. Argh, what a twist. Started out so magical and ends so terrfying. I hope she has a few spells of her own.
