It’s still Friday here, so I’m squeezing in my offering for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Rochelle also provided the prompt for this week, which happens to be the picture that inspired the cover for her novel.
If you like my story just a little bit, please check out these amazing stories from the Fictioneers. Every week, they raise the bar. These stories are getting so good.
Genre: Mystery; 100 words

The phone was a relic except for the day it rang. It rattled her, and brought her out of her belabored reading of onion-skinned manuscripts of recorded names and indistinct facts. With silence on the other end, she carefully returned the phone to its carriage, wondering if she dreamt it.
Sometimes she answered the phone…always static. Sometimes she threw it in a drawer.
Yellow and red scribbles marred the manuscript she held, as if marked by a child, save for an address outlined clearly in red. The phone rang, clutching it in her shaking hands, an answer, “I am here.”
