Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for all her work and organization. You can visit her site and read through the other Flash Fiction Friday postings at:
For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction. Come, enjoy a night in The Room With A View.
Here’s my contribution:
The Room With A View
The warden simply said, “you’ve won the lottery, Nolley. Parole came through.”
Nolley peeled a faded photo from the wall, tucked it inside his breast pocket, then offered his bare wrists to receive the iron manacles beginning his out-processing. He was guided through several doors, down a long corridor, then out an external passage to a soggy, sandy expanse.
The surf churned hungrily.
“Your room with a view.” Upon an obviously man-made boulder sat a single, barnacle-covered cell.
“Haven’t noticed this from the yard.”
“Yea, Can’t see it at high tide, and she’s a comin’ in.”
