Friday Fictioneers – 6th September 2013

Welcome  to Friday Fictioneers. Here is this week’s piece, I never read more than one or two of the other stories before I wrote my own, as I am sure there will be a few similar ones and then I wouldn’t have been able to use this one. If there are any similarities I promise you they are purely accidental. Feel free to comment and I will do my best to reply promptly! Thanks for reading. :)

Friday Fictioneers 6th September 2013 hosted by Rochelle Wisoff Fields


Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.)


Make every word count.

The Trophy Cabinet (100 words)

Lucy ‘s anxious fingers missed the comfort of her broach as she crept into the darkened study. Like a theatre spotlight, her flashlight’s beam swept the panelled walls before alighting on a small, wooden shelving unit.

Her heart quickened as she approached;  Ralph’s toy car, Dr Wren’s mah-jong  pieces – all trophies from Morton’s victims!

A soft click behind her bathed the room in light.

“Hello Lucy,” said Morton. “Pity you discovered my secret, I’ll miss you. “

“Oh well,” he added nonchalantly, “I’ll have this to remember you by.”

In the palm of his outstretched hand was Lucy’s missing broach.



  1. Oh crumbs, and just when she learned the truth/discovered the proof as well!
    Interesting comment at the top – I also write my story before reading others in case my “brilliant” idea has already been written!


    • I had a couple of times where my story was a similar idea, but I didn’t know until I read the others, and of course if I read them first I would be compelled to trash mine and write another. There is always a risk that if I read them all first I would feel paralyzed and unable to write for fear of appearing to copy. Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂


  2. Hi James I wrote this on your Project O article, but I wanted to make sure you got it!

    James thanks for taking part in Project O! I waited a bit to drop by on purpose, which I will reveal in the future while breaking the project down. I did want to drop by and say thanks for participating. Without all of you this couldn’t of been possible. -OM


    • You are most welcome and thanks for the opportunity. I enjoyed it very much, especially the comments that followed the survey, they were very entertaining! I have only read a couple of the others so far but I plan on going back to it when I get a bit more time. 🙂
