Friday Fictioneers – Grapevine
This is the first time I am attempting to do this, so bear with me 🙂 My fiction piece is 160 words long. I know it is supposed to be 100 words. I couldn’t figure out how to get it down without losing something of the story. Maybe someone else can figure it out!
The idea behind Friday Fictioneers is that you submit a 100 word flash fiction story associated with the picture challenge added the previous Wednesday. You can read the other submissions this week on Madison’s Blog here: madison-woods.com/index-of-stories/grapevines/. There is also a Facebook Page too specially for Friday Fictioneers and you can find it here: www.facebook.com/FridayFictioneers.
If you’d like to know the rules then this is the page to visit:madison-woods.com/friday-fictioneers.

Suddenly something loomed over him, blocking his view. He studied it for a full minute, taking in the rounded white dome and the black dot in the centre. His tiny brain strained under the pressure of trying to figure out what this anomaly could be. A shiver ran the full length of his fat white body. He did not know what this great alien thing was but he knew to be frightened. As fast as his tiny feet could carry him, he scampered off to the safety of the thick forest that was his home.
“Judieeee” shouted John, as he straightened his creaking joints, “get the bug spray. We have worms on our grapes again.”
