Happy New Year, Friday Fictioneers! It’s good to be back. And what a lovely photo to come back to, provided by Melanie Greenwood. It brings to mind a life full of adventure.
My story this week is not quite that. I’m not sure it’s a complete story, but I think it could make an interesting longer one.
Thanks again to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for leading our group and flying us into the new year. I know we are in good hands, Captain!

Genre: Realistic Fiction/Mystery (99 words)
