Friday Fictioneers: Hoping for Guidance

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

Sitting in her car, Shelley debates whether she should go in. She knows that’s a Synagogue and though she’s not Jewish, she’s in deep need of guidance from above. This has not been a good year for her. She lost her job half-way through the year and now, though it’s near Christmas, she’s on the verge of getting evicted by her unsympathetic land-lady. “I’ll give you ’til the end of the week and then you’re out.” Her shriek still echoes in her brain.

With a sigh, she exits her car and cross the road, praying she’ll receive a sign from above.

Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above.

  1. I love it! So many people expect a ‘sign’ from somewhere. It’s often linked to religion, but of course, the sign could come in any shape or form! It’s good keep an open mind!

  2. Whether she gets a sign from above or from within herself, some quiet reflection on what got her there and how she can get out of it. Good story.

  3. The year has been bad for her, it seems. May be new year will bring a new beginning. But god works in his mysterious ways. She had taken the right decision to go in.
