It’s time for Friday Fictioneers again. This prompt has sparked my imagination to write a story titled, A Warmer Destination. You can enjoy reading lots of 100-word stories by visiting Rochelle’s blog site.

A Warmer Destination
Part of me wants to stay and part of me wants to leave. I’ve been with Ted for ten years now and I’m used to his ways; like how he checks my mobile and manages my finances.
But recently I came upon a windfall. I had heard that Fiji is warm this time of year, so I’m escaping the cold grey clouds of home.
As I peer out the aeroplane window, the hostess serves me champagne. I’m already flying above the grey clouds. I open the brochure and run my hand tentatively over turquoise waters and clear blue skies. I smile.

I hope you enjoy my story below titled, A Head for the Clouds.
A Head for the Clouds
‘You have your head in the clouds.’ Mum said.
I thought that was odd, so I sat up on the rooftop and looked at the clouds.
She was right I have a knack for recognising clouds. Now I take photographs and categorise them in my album.
Mum’s album has photographs of people. She can tell a person’s mood by their facial features and body language.
‘Sometimes it’s an illusion,’ she says.
Today I saw a moray eel in the clouds but when I looked from another angle I saw a toucan.
‘Is it an illusion? Or a matter of perspective?’
