It’s here – another Friday. And that means another Friday Fictioneers! I swear, I live for these moments. All week my mind is getting geared up for the weekly story and a new prompt. I love it. So a special thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, who provides us with such awesome weekly prompts. Check out this week’s below:
Silas looked at his young apprentice in dismay. “When I asked you to clean the shop Xavier, this isn’t what I meant.”
Xavier hung his head and shuffled his feet, ankle deep in murky water. “I’m sorry, Master,” he mumbled.
Silas grumbled to himself about vexing, useless apprentices and tromped through the water to the front of the shop. “Look! The mess is even outside now.” Xavier winced at the sight of the flooded parking lot. Silas waved his hand and the water started to recede. He handed Xavier a mop. “Get to work, boy. And this time, no magic.”
