Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff Fields at Addicted to Purple for hosting another week of the Addicting Friday Fictioneer. It is a where a bunch of us ink junkies use our talents to create a 100 word story using a photo prompt. Below is the photo and my story this week. Come try it out.
I usually keep my stories at exactly 100 words.
Mattie once turned a warehouse into an upscale living space. Converting this barn into a dream home will be easy. She plans to build her inheritance into a utopia that would do her ancestor proud.
She‘ll replace the wood with glass panels. She’ll trim the shrubs into lawn sculptures. Then create a rose garden, gazebo and a Koi pond.
Mattie was lost in thought when startled by a bang and the rattling of chains. “Leave my barn,” a voice yelled. “It’s been my haunting place since I was whipped to death for teaching slaves to read three hundred years ago.”
