What’s Going On In There? – Friday Fictioneers

Wednesday is here.  Mom is totally absorbed in From Silt and Ashes, having already read Please Say Kaddish For Me in two days!  She asked me if I had any good books to read.  Do I ever!  How about our very own hostess’ two first books in the trilogy for which I am desperately waiting for the third?  Yes, Rochelle, thanks for taking my mother away from me!  Hee Hee Hee… Just kidding.

Lucy Fridkin‘s beautiful image has taken me somewhere I had not intended to go at all.  Go figure.  To join in, click on Rochelle’s name for the rules and regs. and if you are still too shy to participate but want to read more takes on the photo prompt, please click on the blue frog!

What’s Going On In There?

“They say they can hear everything.” 

“I don’t know about that, but if they can, should we not be careful of what we say?” 

Footsteps approaching.

“Pardon me, Ma’am, I’m so sorry to say there is no hope for him. It would be in his best interest….”

“Shut up, dammit!  He might hear you!  How can you say such a thing?  What’s the matter….”

The voices drifted off and he was left alone with his thoughts.

“I wish I could tell them all will be okay.  That It’s what I want. I see nothing but peace and tranquility up ahead.”
