Friday Fictioneers – The Wrong Destination

PHOTO PROMPT © Fatima Fakier Deria

Oi, mate! This is the wrong afterlife. You’ve made a mistake. I’ve no clue what to do with the Tupperware. Nothing against the ladies, you understand—they’re very pretty. Nubile even. And the fields are definitely Elysian. But I don’t belong here.

In case of further booking errors, I’m also not Christian. So no harps and heavenly choirs, okay?

I couldn’t have been clearer. Feasting, carousing, a little banging of fists on trestles, a spot of wrestling. The reservation was for Valhalla. Valkyries, not nymphs. No substitutions acceptable.


This isn’t hell, is it?


Friday fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a 100-word story in response to a photo prompt. You can find other stories here

  1. Ison’t think any of us understood that plastic is the next thing to eternal. When it first became a household product, we were totally enthralled. Imagine waking up and realizing you were in Plastic “Paradise.” This one made me laugh.

  2. Perhaps it is Hell. On arrival you are issues with one glass and two Tupperware bowls. But it is not a place for picnics, or merriment; be prepared for late night feasts of Ghoul porridge and warm mulled wine.

      1. At the risk of highjacking your comment stream Neil, if anybody can help me. Example, I can follow the LINK to the stories, but can’t comment or like on people’s pages. I have to go back into my own WordPress admin, search the author page, and like from within my own WordPress ‘reader’ page. If I try to LIKE from an author page, a white screen flashes. Even if I’m signed in. Any help appreciated. Can email
