Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about some very unusual wine and it’s effects, begins after the photo.
Genre: Speculative Fiction/Humor
“Oh that’s good!” exclaimed Jamieson, sipping again. He squinted. “You allow sunlight in your wine cellar?”
Petra grinned at the apparently glowing wine bottles. “There’s no window. Our yeast has bio-luminescent qualities. That light glows from within the wine.”
Jamieson saw dollar signs. “Incredible! Any side effects?”
“None whatsoever!” Petra opened a door into another, very dark, room.
Jamieson entered slowly. “Hard to see in here.”
“What?” queried Petra, entering the room. “It’s quite bright.”
“Better,” said Jamieson when it brightened. Then he realized where the light came from.
Twin beams of light streamed from Petra’s eyes.
“Ah, Petra. About those side effects…”
Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields wines and dines us with a photo and our own imagination. Getting snockered (not really) on fine wine, we write up to 100 words of flash fiction based upon the photo. Hopefully, after all that wine, the stories make sense. Look here for more stories based upon the photo above: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2014/09/24/26-september-2014/
