Friday Fictioneers is a weekly challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The above is my 95-word fictional story. Each week, writers are offered a photo prompt, from which we are challenged to write a complete story, in 100 words or less. Then we post, share, comment and critique with dozens of other writers. Click the blue frog button to find more stories, and join in!

Admission: This week my story is a bit of development of a larger / longer WIP.  For more excerpts of this story, search the tag “aftermath” on this blog!
