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 or less. Hundred words flow quite easily but less is always challenging for me. I admire all the other writers and enjoy their reads as everyone is likely to tell a different story.
This week’s photo is shared by Lauren Moscato. Thank you Lauren.
Any day the door attracted more comments than guests.
Becky and Rose passed ‘The Crane House’ and started talking.
“Why did he build this?” asked Becky.
“He says it’s art on display.” added Rose.
“Art follows beauty. Forget beauty it doesn’t even have a purpose.” said Becky.
“His art has tainted our village. ‘Piece of art’ he calls it – that is, if it is art at all.” said Rose.
Their voices grew dimmer along with their figures.
Crane could spend an entire day listening to such chatters. Crane got up to answer the door bell. A boy handed him a sealed letter.
Crane’s eyes ran through the sea of words. With a smile he said, “So, the villagers have filled a case against me – for my artwork.”
