Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Fictoneers.
Let’s start with a visit to or host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, at her site for all the rules for this challenge. In brief they are to write a story 100 words or less based on the photo prompt. Take a chance and join our group by submitting a story. Thanks to Jellico’s Stationhouse for this weeks photo.

Now on to my story for the week – Best Friends
We played all day. You ran, I chased. You jumped, I jumped higher. When you mastered your bike, we raced down hill, arms stretched overhead. Your laughter was a babbling brook that followed us everywhere.
Here in the dark corner of the garage your bike and I wait. Its bright blue paint is covered in dust. The quiet whispers frighten me. Leukemia, they utter furtively as if terrified by the word. Your parents clutch each other, tears streaming.
I saw your parents when they came home yesterday. They were laughing. A sound I’ve missed. Soon you’ll come out to play.
Word Count – 100
Thanks for reading. Take a moment and leave me a comment.
