Mom hung a big stained glass circle in the backyard’s door. It showed a dolphin in the sea.

When you looked through the waters, the world behind was twisted and strange. Gazing at it, I kept imagining a different place, half rain forest, half alien planet. A place of adventure that would wash away my boring town. I wanted to jump through the glass hoop and emerge over there.


That dolphin looked like it was jumping so I wondered : when the dolphins at the aquarium loop through the hoop, do they too hope to emerge free on the other side?

The above short story is an entry to a weekly challenge on WordPress called : Friday Fictioneers!

The idea is to write a hundred words short fiction ( flash ) story upon the prompt that is provided by Rochelle under the form of the above picture.

Thanks then to Rochelle whose blog is found here :



and I hope my readers will like it.

    • Thank you very much, gang! It is only my small part of the Friday Fictioneers Club. The picture is the prompt and other stories are around the Collection link if you click on it!
      But the short story is mine so I’ll keep your comment as an early Christmas gift! Tay. :D

    • Thank you Rochelle! Young ones are often less encumbered by subtile distinctions than adults. When a wrong is evident, they stare at it instead of “relativizing”!

      Peace unto you and your loved ones for the holidays ( even though Hanukkah is a month passed ), Tay
