Friday Fictioneers, the most wonderful flash fiction on the interweb! Warning: highly addictive! Rochelle Wisoff-Fields pulls it all together, asking participants to write a 100-word story, with a beginning, middle and end, in response to a photo prompt, and to interact with our peers. This week’s photo comes from Rochelle. Check out other stories or join us, by visiting Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple.
Last week I managed to visit 2/3 of the posts, and appreciate all of you who read my story– especially given how late I was! However, this week I will be away again. I leave Friday for two weeks in Fiji, a trip I won a year ago. Needless to say, I’m not sure how much time I’ll have, or what kind of wifi there will be. Given my addiction for FF, I’ll do my best to join in next week. If I’m not around… I’ll be swimming with the fishes, in the best possible way!

I’m Talking to You! (100 words, exactly)
Madly attracted to you, I hung pictures on my wall– snapshots of you, often taken when you were distracted, looking elsewhere.
Shout, shout, let it all out!
In the Polaroids, you looked anywhere but at me; my feelings unrequited.
These are the things I can do without, Come on,
Every song seemed to be about you, about us… waiting to be us. I looked at the snapshots and wished.
I’m talking to you,
I walked past your apartment– notice me, notice me– singing along, and hoping…
Still married, all these years later– the song still gets to me.
