Another Door Closes (Friday Fictioneers)

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

Helen rested her head against the door, defeated. If it had been any other day she might have laughed at this. She looked sorrowfully at the pieces of the doorknob in her hand and let the tears flow as she released them from her grip.

Mr Spinks purred and rubbed himself against her legs. She nudged him away.

“You can go find your own corner of this bloody cupboard, it’s your fault we’re in this mess” she snapped furiously.

She watched him skulk off as she slid down to the floor.

The clock beside her read 09:01. Yet another door had just closed in her face.


106 words (almost there!)

This is my first time joining in with the Friday Fictioneers, where you write a piece of Flash Fiction – just 100 words – using a provided photo prompt.

  1. Dear Anna,

    Welcome to the party. I love the way you told the reader just enough. We know the cat’s a cat by his actions. We don’t know what door has closed but are left hoping for another to open soon. I look forward to reading more from you. It’s only fair to warn you that this is a habit forming activity.

  2. First off, welcome to our most addictive party! Great start and here’s to hoping she can figure out how to use a coat hanger or something to get out… living with a cat, one assumes she lives alone…

  3. Hi Anna and welcome. I really enjoyed this story and the way you didn’t feel the need to tie everything up. Loved that cat! I’ve only recently joined and I’m really enjoying it though word count remains a struggle! Rachel
