friday fictioneers: i’m here


We were suppose to meet here, that’s what she said.

Was it my imagination? Did I really hear a little girl call to me from the shadows of the ruined villa?

What was it she whispered?

My name…and someone else’s. But whose?

A name from my past? Marco…or some such. I don’t recall anyone by that name.

What was this place? An arena. Perhaps a theatre. It feels familiar, although I’ve never been here before.

Wait now…

Mama spoke of playing in an open-air theatre when she was a little girl. With a friend? A…a…a…Β

    • I’m sure they are. My aunt was a Hawaiian witchdoctor, a KAHUNA, so I have this sensitivity to the spiritual. I don’t dwell on it, however. I prefer to focus my energies on this world, and trying to make it a joyful place. πŸ™‚


    • I think I was aiming for spooky. I’m finding out that readers definitely have their own “take.” I’ll have to try this story again and see if I can develop it more succinctly. Thanks for the comment. πŸ™‚


    • Thanks! That’s what I thought. Except, I forgot that I was suppose to have a…beginning, middle, and an end. So looks like I didn’t get it right. Have to work on that, although I appreciate your comment…lots! πŸ™‚


    • After I read your comment, I realized I’d not followed the rules…beginning, middle, and end. My ending definitely leaves the story “up in the air,” which I’d intended. Maybe I’ll try and rework it to fit the challenge. I got carried away in a Harry Potter moment. Thanks for the critique. πŸ™‚


    • Mahalo for the correction. I’ll have to do a better job of editing since writers are now reading my posts. I’d not thought of that when I joined various writing challenges. The feedback is good. πŸ™‚


    • It’s so great how readers bring a different perspective to a story. I’d not thought “sinister.” I’d been thinking more like “spooky.” It might, or might not, be obvious that I don’t read thrillers. That’s my hubby’s preferred reading. I can dabble in ghostly, even though it scares me. hugs for your input… πŸ™‚


  1. Aahhh, I see you’ve left us to decide for ourselves whether Mama’s really got a role in this story or not. I can see a number of possibilities growing out of this unique take on the prompt.


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
