A story to tell…

This is a story for Friday Fictioneers, which is hosted by Rochelle. Every week you are challenged to write a 100 word story based on a photo.

Thanks to JS Brand for this week’s photo and also to Rochelle for hosting the challenge.

Thanks to all the readers for their time, too.


Once upon a time there was a stranger.

I met him on a boat ride in a quiet little village.

We exchanged a few glances.

It was destiny — we kept bumping into each other.

We ended up on a sort- of- a- date at a restaurant by the lake.

When I reached my home country, I wanted to hear his voice. But I didn’t call him. I — somehow — lost his number.

A year later… I stand at the same place, thinking….


I look at the water playing carelessly. I wish I had given him my correct name at least.

    • Thanks Linda. I hope you are feeling better now.
      Sometimes we cry for the things that we don’t have or don’t work out and sometimes we cry for things that work perfectly well. Humans! 🙂
