Another week of wild and wonderful stories from the Friday Fictioneers brigade! Rochelle Wisoff-Fields leads the fun, and this week provides the photo prompt. The challenge: write a 100-word story: with a beginning, middle and end, using the photo provided. Check out Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple to read the other stories, or join in the fun. It’s where all the kool kids are playing.
I always welcome honest, kind or constructive feedback. Please leave a comment!
All That Glitters… (100 words, exactly)
Marlene stacked the heavy boxes one on top of the other at the back of the store. The afternoon rush left the supplies of bobble head Johnny Depps, sparkly palm trees and playing cards nearly empty. Her feet hurt from running up the aisles to grab merchandise; her head hurt from answering inane questions.
“Do you see many celebrities?” “Got any maps of stars’ houses?” “Is it so exciting living in Hollywood?”
It was endless– the silly things people said while picking out chotchkies.
When I’m a star, I’ll never look back, she thought, as she restocked snow globes.
