A challenge was issued and a challenge has been answered by both bloggers and not-yet-blogging individuals.

For the past several weeks Friday Fiction has involved a short scenario which different writers have taken and made uniquely their own by creating a story, not to exceed 1000 words, based on that scenario.

The results continue to be remarkable and I delight in everyone's creativity.

This week's outline was:

Two people are seated at a diner in the early hours of the morning. One passes the other an object under the table. Without touching their coffee, first one leaves, then the other. After the parties part ways, the recipient of the object is struck by a vehicle. Someone else retrieves the object...

The first to respond was a friend named Eric of this great fella. Since Eric is a man without a blog, his story ("Pandora's Envelope") appears here. He has a clever way of setting up his story. Don't worry if you have to read it twice to figure out what's going on, it took me three tries. Don't you just love a challenge?!

The beautiful and artistic Silk shares her story Of Angels and Demons. I do believe she definitely has a novel waiting to be revealed!

Would you believe there is more than one feisty chick in blogworld?

Well, Feisty Republican Whore entered her take on the scenario with a bit of fiction which not only showcases her creativity, but her feistiness and attitude, as well. This is one woman to be taken seriously!

My good friend and the very dashing sailor of Snugg Harbor has graced us once again with a glimpse into his deep and thoughtful mind in Couples. It would appear this gentleman among gentlemen can also take a walk on the dark side.

Miss Lolly is another lady who should be blogging, but is not, at least, not at the moment. She bowled me over with her "Storms on the Horizon." I'd like to say more, but do not want to give anything away. Well done, Lolly.

Miss Nettie of Mistress Tootie Belle Rules the World proves that a story with infinite possibilities can be told with brevity. Here is her take:

My hat is off to these original thinking, creative, and clever individuals. Well done each and all.

Thank you each very much for lending your skills, time, and resourceful minds.
