FF The Last Set of Stairs

Friday Fictioneers is a group of bloggers that write 100-word stories after being inspired by a photo posted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We are allowed to use the photo in our post and encouraged to leave each other comments. I always appreciate anyone who takes the time to leave a comment on any of my posts. I write my story before I read any of the other writer’s creations.

Even if short story isn’t your favorite type of story, please consider sharing some writers’ and  bloggers’ work today. It is getting harder and harder to share on social media as all of the sites like Facebook now hide your posts (in hopes that we will pay to make them appear). So please subscribe to and follow any other bloggers that you like.

If you are unsure of the rules/form of Friday Fictioneers then please go to Rochelle’s blog by clicking on her name above.

  The Last Set of Stairs

He said her dreams lay at the top.

She wrinkled her nose at the dirty steps. It was obvious that no caretaker had been here. How could he be rich and have servants if the steps leading up to his home were this dirty?

Jolene let his hand drop from hers and backed away. The pain in his face became too much to bear, so she turned around. She walked quietly back to her car.

John walked up the servant’s entrance to his family’s 150 year old mansion. The diamond ring in his pocket poking him with every step.

  1. Poor guy! But I’d be pretty suspicious, too — looks like these steps could lead to a cemetery, both literally and figuratively.

    I hope you’re enjoying these prompts; it seems to me you’re getting better all the time at writing short tales. One thought:
    It was obvious that no caretaker had been here.
    Here’s where an adverb could save you a few words to use later for more description. Like Obviously no caretaker had touched these for years.
