Hello All! Looking forward to a relaxing weekend? So am I! But like I said before it’s hot and in an attempt to keep my mind of the blistering heat, I tried to
pen type a flash fiction (a story in 100 words or less) inspired by the photo below. Hope you like and will perhaps even participate! Details and links after you read mine 😉
Word Count: 100 (not including the title)
The Wait for the Waiting Room
I shivered as I took my evening walk around the campus– home for me but hospital to most.
An auto stopped beside me. A middle-aged lady poked her head out and asked, “Where’s the patient registration counter?”
“That.” I pointed. “But it is closed now.”
“I know.” She smiled. “I have come to queue up for it.”
“But the counter will open at 8 am.”
“Yes but by 6 am the queue extends well beyond the gate of the hospital. If I join the queue by 3 am, I can be assured of a doctor’s appointment for my ailing husband.
