Being somewhat new to the blogging my fiction game, I’ve been dipping in and out to find other bloggers entering into the same exciting world. I found Rochelle Wisoff-Fields a few days ago and loved her Friday Fictioneers challenge. Use the photo as inspiration, write a hundred(ish) words – and share!

“No, no, NO!”
I surveyed the incandescent woman before me, replacing her carefully coiffed hair and perfect make up with my small niece’s tousled mop and shiny red face. It saved me from retaliating. I would never smack Annabelle, even at her most tantrum-like. This woman, well…
“I. Asked. You. To. Show. Me. Something. Decent!”
She punctuated each word with a sharp jab of her index finger into my chest.
“This is my house, my front garden. I’m just collecting the paperwork for the next property. I’m sure you will fall in love with it.”
That shut her up.
