Rochelle is the kind host of FRIDAY FICTIONEERS and every week she shares a photo with us. All we have to do is write a story in 100 words. I admire all the writers and enjoy their reads as everyone is likely to tell a different story.
This week’s photo is shared by David Stewart. Thank you David.
In a house, a rocking chair creaked along with the music being played at the gazebo.

“Sorry, I can’t see.”
“Oh! I’m sorry. Let me help you…with….”
“Sure if you could…get my medicine…I can’t….”
“Yes,” said the officer and entered. An uneasy feeling settled as he looked at a photo hung on a wall.
He knew… there will be no medicine for a grieving heart.
