‘Tis Wednesday, mes amis!  Yes, that means another round of Friday Fictioneers is here.  Wow!  There were 102 entries last week!  How amazing is that?  Doesn’t it make you want to try your hand?  It’s a challenge.  Only 100 words – or less, one full story with beginning, middle and end.  G’head, you know you wanna….

Thanks, as always, to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields from the blog Addicted to Purple for rounding us rowdy peeps up and choosing the photo from which our imagination must roam… This week a thank you goes to Fatima Fakier Deria for supplying this photo.  Looking forward to what others come up with.  Click on the Blue Frog to see for yourself!

When Opportunity Strikes

It was the opportunity of a lifetime.  Sail with a couple, help with the videography and editing before uploading.  His cost?  Time.  What an amazing year was in store for Martin.  They would leave the port of Venice, sail all around the Mediterranean then make their way to the Strait of Gibraltar then sail down along the coast of Africa.

Martin was worried that he would feel like a third wheel with Sasha and Frank.  He never did.

The sudden squall that sent Frank overboard, forever lost at sea couldn’t have been planned.

They mourned him and sailed on.
