Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up based on a photo prompt. The Challenge – write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle, and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.) The Key – make every word count. Up to the challenge? Join in!
“She bought the place sight-unseen,” my sister explained. “The agent said it was cheap because the previous owners had disappeared a year prior leaving everything behind, stressing the police had investigated and determined there was no foul play.”
