Window to the Sky – Friday Fictioneers

It’s time for the Friday Fictioneers challenge, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Today’s amazing photo was contributed by Roger Bultot. Roger does not have a website, but has kindly provided this photo for our prompt.

As always, everyone is welcome to write their own 100-word story. Instructions are here. Why not give it a try?

Here’s my story. I’m aware the end is a bit abrupt. 🙂

Window to the Sky

A patch of sunlight fell on Justine’s shoulders from a window to the sky. She dug at the concrete to extract its heat. Grime coated her throat, raw from screaming that pounded in her ears. Was she screaming still?

Her shivering did not move thick walls of dripping sea water enclosing around her.

It wasn’t a trick of the eye. In her mind she still saw the glare in the window and an opening door.

A voice commanded her. “This place doesn’t exist and neither do you.”

The ground gaped open and a rush of water flushed her out to sea.
