Friday Fictioneers – Rain

16 October, 2015

It’s been another kerrrayzee week at work, but luckily home life is a bit calmer for now. Luckily this means that when Rochelle sent this week’s prompt pic


I had time to write. You know the deal by now – writers from around the word create 100 words each in response to the prompt. Copyright of the pic belongs to Rochelle this week, copyright of the FriFic entries you can read here belongs to each writer. My words are these…


I parked my car alongside hers and switched off the engine. The windscreen wipers, doublespeeding against the downpour, stopped midsweep. I pulled up my coat hood and stepped from the car.

She wound down her window. “Thanks for coming out,” she smiled.

“You couldn’t have picked a better night for a flat,” I said, nodding upwards. “Sit in my car while I change it.”

As I loosened nuts and hefted the spare, she explained. She had started driving, felt the heavy steering and known something was wrong. But she never did explain why she had been parked at a motel.

    What a minx!
    Good piece.

  2. Give her time; she’ll come up with something. Nice one.

  3. I once had to call my Dad when I was 20 to pick me up in a similar situation. Bless his heart, he never asked.

    My mother once got a flat in a huge rainstorm and some good Samaritan, in a rush, stopped and helped her out (might have helped there were a bunch of kids inside the car!)

  5. Ooooooo that’s suspicious

  6. Oh, what a gentleman!


  7. Very intriguing… The motel was next to the road she was on?

  8. This took me from mundane to Uh-oh! Nice twist at the end.

  9. Ex wife, huh? Yup. 😉
