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.
Lenny only went to the library when he knew he could be alone. The librarian greeted him warmly. Lenny smiled shyly as he walked past her.
He walked the aisles twice and checked behind the center displays. Once he was sure he was alone, he picked out a book.
“Hop On Pop” was a favorite. Lenny could sound out most of the words. “You…you…Oo…Pee…Pee…P. Pee…Pee…P…You…You…Oo…P. Poop.” He laughed before correcting. “Uh…p pup. Pup is up.”
The Librarian peeked around the corner. “Lenny, kids are coming. It’s an early day.”
Lenny didn’t like kids. They teased him for trying to read.
