Friday Fictioneers is sponsored by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.  The idea is to write a 100 word story with a beginning, middle and end based on the photo prompt.

Bob

(100 words)

“Have you seen my wife?” he yells to the clerk.

The clerk squints toward the figure in the sunlit door.  “Not sure.  What does she look like?”

“About yay big,” he levels his cane just above his head.  “Beautiful blonde hair and deep brown eyes.”

“Sounds vaguely familiar.  What was she wearing?”

“White dress, heels.  She don’t move too fast, but I’m a patient guy.”

“Her name?”

“Mary,” he says with a wink.

“Bob,” the clerk giggles, “if I were thirty years older I’d strip that mannequin of her dress and marry you myself.

Bob grins.  “See you tomorrow, Beth.”
