#FridayFictioneers: Shadowed Kitchen
Time for a new 100-word fiction piece inspired by www.madison-woods.com #FridayFictioneers challenges. This week's photo is by Raina Ng. If you go to Madison's website, you can join in...it's fun to write these and even more fun to see all the different responses to the same image.
I would love any input readers have for me on how to make this snippet better, as well as (of course!) any comments of enjoyment.
Here I sat every day in the sweet-smelling shadows after school, after the bus dropped me off. The smell of the cumin, coriander, ginger, cinnamon from the jars on the wall always made me daydream of food while I solved the math problems or English analogies. In those days, every teacher gave us 25 short answer items a night. Their mantra was "homework works." In today's world, Adam only learns from the focus of his attention: his computer. He almost doesn't even watch television any more.
