It is time for another story! Thursday’s I devote the day to writing for the Friday Fictioneers flash fiction challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge requires that you write a story of no more than 100 words and that the story have a beginning, middle and end. So here is today’s photo and my story.
Walking along the promenade, window-shopping, we came across this store called “Trak All the Way.” We could smell the shop before we came upon it. Garlic! I love garlic!
Heading inside we were surprised to find that all they had were religious crosses and, of course, garlic. It was then that we realized the reason that they sold what they did was to keep the vamps away.
The sun was setting as we turned to leave. The woman ran over, hung a cross around my neck and handed me some garlic. “No charge,” she said. “Be very careful going home.”
