Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.
Thanks to Piya Singh for this week’s photo prompt

He came up to her and gently stroked away her frown.
She prayed to the God whose existence she doubted. Prayed that He wasn’t paying attention.
