Country Roads: #FridayFictioneers

My Thoughts on Seeing This Prompt: Yikes! I'm not going to write this one. It looks dark, gloomy and will not elude a great story. But then I haven't written for my favourite Friday Fictioneers for the past two weeks.

The Encounter: #FridayFictioneers

It's a rare, sunny morning in Chicago. That special kind of morning when the sun streams right on to your shoulders, and your spirits are simply soaring. "What a memorable work trip," thinks Sonia smugly.
