First Friday Fictioneers Post is my Twenty-First Post (Woo-Hoo)

This makes my twenty-first post.  I am having so much fun taking part in the flash fiction challenges.  It is has been great being able to interact with many other like-minded bloggers.  I look forward to interacting with many more of you while continuing to grow as a writer.  My goal is to compose 365 post this year.  If I continue at this pace I will have shelled out many more than that goal.  No matter what,  I want to make it enjoyable and continue to meet many other wonderful bloggers.

Below is the photo prompt for Friday Fictioneers.  Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the creator of the group as many of you know better than me.  Much thanks to her for continuing to provide prompts and assemble this group of writers.  I look forward to interacting with the Fictioneers in the future.

She tripped running up the stairs. She had to reach him. He took a nap every afternoon when he arrived home. It didn’t matter that he was fifteen. He was her blue-eyed baby boy.

The smoke was suffocating. When she reached the apartment, it was fully enflamed.

“Mam, you have to come with me.” The firefighter said as he grabbed her trembling arm.

“My baby is in there.” She screamed.

“Let me do my job.”

She didn’t remember the firefighter carrying her down the stairs. All she remembered was the sound of her baby’s voice.

“Momma, I made it out.”

  1. Dear Silverstein,

    I love a happy ending. You could have taken it either way, I’m glad your muse was in a good frame of mind. 😉

    A hearty welcome to Friday Fictioneers. I hope you’ll be back.



    1. Thank you Rochelle. I enjoyed participating in the Fictioneers and I look forward to more to come.
      I like happy endings too. I didn’t know if this one would have one until I finished. I’m glad it did too. 😊

  2. Dear Silverstein,

    A mother’s nightmare. Congratulations on your Woo-Hoo post number 21. Welcome to the party, pal. I like your pen name. Looking forward to reading more of your work.



  3. I love the way you think of your fifteen-year-old as your baby. I still think of all six of mine as babies – and the youngest is 31! 🙂 You show the mother’s panic really well and ‘m really glad your story had a happy ending. Nicely written.

      1. I only started late July last year, and didn’t really get going until I started FF after Christmas. It’s great fun and everyone is so nice!

      1. Thank you. It was fun to participate and read everyone’s. I’m still trying to get through the list. I’m afraid I may not get to read all of them. Thanks for stopping by and reading mine.:)
