Friday Fictioneers

25 10 2012

Friday Fictioneers, a loose collection of tortured souls pounding out 100 words every Friday based on a photo prompt. Some are serious, some not. I seem to be falling into the latter category recently. It’s fun, try it! Comments welcome, I’m here to learn.

It’s All In The Mind

“It moved, Kate!”

“Billy, you did not move the sugar shaker with the power of your mind.”

“Did too! It seriously wobbled.”

“I didn’t see it.”

Billy sighed, shoulders drooping. “Hey!” he said. “Is that a deer in the garden?”

“Where?”

As Kate stood to peer out the window, Billy quickly grabbed the shaker and moved it onto the table. Kate sat back down and looked at her brother in exasperation. “That’s cheating.”

Kate focused her will on the shaker. It rose smoothly into the air, did a neat backflip, and landed squarely in the rack. “Try again,” she said.

Thank you, Sandra. He’ll catch up with his sister and surpass her I’m sure.

Ha, she showed him, didn’t she? In your last para ‘focused’ is misspelled, but otherwise all looks good to me. Cute story πŸ™‚

Thank you. I really must practice being a bit more serious some time. But not yet, eh?

Hi Pete,
Good job on this week’s prompt. Kate has definitely raised the bar on sibling rivalry.
“A loose collection of tortured souls….?” Hmmm…could be.

Thank you, Rochelle. And thank you for hosting.

Ok, I was sucked in, spun in a circle and put down facing another direction! Nicely done!

If a writer can have that sort of effect, then he has to be pleased. Thank you.

Hi Pete,
Innovative reaction to the photo. I’d watch her closely to make sure she didn’t steal food off my plate! Fun read! Ron

He’ll get his own back one day, don’t worry.

Loved this!

Hi Pete: Loved this. Wonder if she learned this trick watching the film “Ghost?” .. .He better keep his wallet in a safe place.

Nicely done surprise, which also speaks well to all of our fantasies about being able to do such things. Suddenly a character we least suspected is able to do something magical; maybe we can like that someday too.
