Peering over Hannah’s shoulder, Caleb shrugged, “I guess we have our answer.”
“Friday Fictioneers” is a weekly challenge hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff Fields. The challenge is to write a story, using only 100 words, in response to a photo prompt. This week’s photo was provided by Yarnspinner. It has been a lot of fun to join this fantastic and encouraging group of writers!
