(A continuation of last week’s Friday Fictioneers entry: The Adventures of Thomas and Linguine: The Battle Against the Forces of Negativity)

“Why?” asked Thomas.
“She conspires with Andrew Lloyd Webber to rob your dreams of goodness and replace it with horrendous ‘Memories.’ We sail to Cheeseville at once!”

This has been an installment of the Friday Fictioneers Challenge. If you would like to give the challenge a try, start at Rochelle’s Purple Blog and join the fun.
Here’s the concept: A weekly picture is posted, and the writer is challenged to produce one-hundred (more or less) words of some sort of fiction with a complete plot (beginning, middle and end).
Have fun and happy writing!
