Friday Fictioneers: Mom!

Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who provides us with a photo prompt for the past seven years, which is longer than I’ve been alive by some stretching and breaking of the rules of mathematics. Each week’s challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo.



“Mom, the knee on my pants tore when I slid,” said Billy.

“Mom, will you fix my ballet slippers,” asked Jenny.


“Mom, this button came off my suit. I have to pick up Sae,” said Billy.

“Mom, I tore my gown. Graduation’s in two hours,” said Jenny


“Mom, Sae wants you to make the dresses for the bridal party,” said Bill.

“Mom, I’m starting my internship on Monday. These slacks are a little too long. Could you…?” asked Jenny.

“Did she?” asked Jenny. “Or did she just really love us?”
