Happy New year!!! Friday fictioneers par Ms. Rochelle is on again, and this week’s picture is courtesy of Lora Mitchell. We have been told to specify what genre we write, but I am clueless in that regard, however if anyone has an idea what the genre is, please feel free to point it out.

This week I am offering a short fictional story, and a poem…comments, and constructive criticisms are sincerely appreciated. Please feel free to join in and participate. Thank you always, have a great year!!!

My cousin’s wedding was an extravagant carnival. The only child of her wealthy parents, books of check were autographed  to celebrate her union to her fiancé of 6 weeks.

The reception was filled with foods from all over the world; champagne flowed free like the River Nile. The plutocrats and silk stockings  were in attendance. It was an event to behold…and after much eating and drinking, we were entertained by fire breathers and dancers who rolled and twisted to the music of Africa’s greatest voices…The long night ended with amazing fireworks…

Interestingly so did the marriage…


Brilliant sparks fly high
In a brief moment of passion and intensity
Blue and pink hues of desire dancing across dark city skies
Love soundly reflected in two bright eyes wildly burning free

  1. “god- like beings colliding as night falls” I got a beautifully strange sensation and visual out of this! Great story and poem, have a beautiful Friday!

  2. Very neat. Having seen the River Nile, I presume “the champagne flowed like the River Nile” means “at times there was a lot of it flowing, indeed overflowing, but at other times not much; and it flowed between vast dry areas.” Of course, it could also mean there were crocodiles in it or other even less healthy things…

    • Lol. I honestly switched it to the River Nile at the last minute..i initially had River Niger but didn’t think it would be as well known as the Nile…

      It sure would be cool to see it :). Thanks Simon

  3. no expense was spared…. The high and mighty

    these two phrases are too common. i know you can rewrite them in ways that nobody else ever has before. that’s part of our job – to write things differently than they have already been written. if we can’t do that, then we may as well just read what other people have already written instead of what you have written that’s new. think about another way to say these things. i know you can do it.
