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.

Larry looked at me and slid his belt from round his waist. I felt deep in my pocket for the knife.
“Thanks for the lift, mister. We’ll get out here.”
My stomach growled in anticipation. Tonight, we would eat.
