I finally made the time to join the fun of Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers again. I do hope she will forgive me for the extra twenty words I used 🙂 The idea is to write a story based on the photo prompt using (roughly) one hundred words. Do read all the other stories HERE. And thanks for the wonderful photo this week to J Hardy Carroll.
Lorelei traced the smooth metal as her mom pulled her firmly along the sidewalk.
“Now, when we get there, you be good,” Mom was saying. “I just don’t know how Missus feels about you there. I mean, I told her, but….”
Lorelei let her hand swoop up as the metal arched. A house appeared, set back behind the fence. Lorelei had never seen a place so fancy, not even on the scratchy screen of the little black and white.
Her mom stopped at the entrance, looking down at her.
“I know you are a good girl,” she said, “but today is important. I need to keep this job.”
Lorelei nodded her head, nervously patting down her skirt, before following her mom.
