#FridayFictioneers – Glimmers – #FlashFiction



The house was old, a shadow of its former splendor.  Shadows seeped into its corners and cobwebs crossed its many halls, the only traffic those once busy corridors now saw.  A pale spectacle of late afternoon sunlight coaxed its way through the window perilously perched above the grand staircase, illuminating the past along with the present.

She stood, gazing upwards as clairvoyance whispered round her; suspirations of yesterday floating upon the stale atmosphere like ghosts.  Suspended above the stairs in a fragment of memory only she could see, a banner of sparkling light transposed the dimness.

Glimmers of yesterday, shouting.


Genre:  Fiction

Word Count: 100

Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge to spin a tale of exactly 100 words, graciously hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This is my contribution.

Also, as part of #WritingforWriters Wednesdays.  Interested in taking part of this challenge…visit Rochelles blog for info 🙂  Or click the link below
