Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction prompt where we are given a photo and asked to write a 100 word story – beginning, middle and end. This one came in at 107 words. I also chose to combine Just Jot It January hosted by Linda G. Hill. Today’s prompt, hospital, is brought to us by Charlene at FaithtoRaiseNate.com.
