Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who provides us with a photo prompt. Each week’s challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo. Click here to play along or just read more stories.
A Face From The Ancient Gallery
No one noticed the alterations in the scarecrow. No one paid much attention to the scarecrow. The crows didn’t even acknowledge his existence.
It alerted no one when he descended from his perch. The family was fast asleep in their beds by then. He roamed the house dragging the old-fashioned hooked kaiser blade behind him.
He entered the first room. The little girl jumped up with a start. She didn’t make a sound. One by one, he visited all the rooms.
When he was done, he returned the cowl to the scarecrow and reaffixed it to its post.
