It’s time to write another piece for Friday Fictioneers! Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts this venture. Each week Rochelle 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.

He turned, frustrated, as nature conspired to hinder his progress, then reeled as something struck him on the head.
The last thing he saw was a flash through the trees as he fell to the ground.
