More horrified than surprised!

Friday Fictioneers is here!

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a 100-word story in response to a photo prompt. You can find other stories here. This week’s photo prompt is provided by Fatima Fakier Deria.


Craig had a crush on Seth since Seth joined the office. They became friends quite easily. So, when Seth offered Craig to accompany him on his usual boat rides, he wouldn’t dare say no.

He had doubts that Seth also liked him. They used to joke around about both of them not having girlfriends. Seth told him that he had a surprise for him this weekend.

So, Craig went to the harbor. He saw Seth on his boat, but someone was with him.

Seth shouted from the boat, “Meet my girlfriend, Sarah. I told you I have a surprise for you!”

    I think Seth was purposely being cruel to Craig, not nice. Enjoyed this creative take on the prompt.

  7. Nice take, a bit of a disappointment for Craig though.


  8. That was a cruel trick to play – Seth could have found a kinder way of letting Craig down.
