Bienvenidos: Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers 100 Word Story - Bienvenidos
Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt by Susan Eames

Simone was in awe. Her head swiveled in every direction trying desperately to take it in.  The flowing white curtains, the sun, the sand, the immense pieces of art on the wall reflecting on the highly polished marble floors. She walked through the gargantuan lobby mesmerized by the view of the Caribbean beyond.  Azure waters moved in translucent layers.

Enraptured, she missed a step. Welcome drink crashing to the floor, allowed the scent of mint and lime to escape.

She sat in emergency knowing her vacation was over, but on the other hand maybe she’d get even more pampering. Bienvenidos!

This story drawn from a true happening. And so I wonder how many of you create fiction from a kernel of non-fiction experience. Would love to hear your thoughts.

Friday Fictioneers is a place for flash fiction brought to us by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Visit Rochelle’s site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.
