Madison Woods provided another great writing prompt this week and I’m happy to present my latest 100 word story based on one of her photos. Details about entering Flash Fiction Friday can be found over here.

Please feel free to comment with your responses to it, I always read them and make an effort to go through and read everyone else’s by the end of each weekend.
Don’t forget to also check out Madison Wood’s entry for the prompt on her blog, right here!
