Henry needed some peace and quiet. Hiking through the wilderness, nature always calmed him. A bright orange and black butterfly fluttered close. Mesmerized, he followed it off the trail and soon became lost. The sun set, and he slept under a tree. Rising the next morning, Henry drank from a stream, ate Granola from his bag, and munched on berries. Finally finding the trail, his phone “dinged” with messages from his wife.
“Where are you? I bet you got lost, you stupid, stupid man!”
Crushing his phone under his heel, he stepped off the trail and back into the wilderness.
“Friday Fictioneers” is a weekly challenge by Rochelle Wisoff Fields. The challenge is to write a story, using only 100 words, in response to a photo prompt. It has been a lot of fun to join in with this fantastic and encouraging group of writers! This week’s beautiful photo was taken by Jan Wayne Fields.
