July 19: Flash Fiction Challenge

July 19, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about Fannie Hooe.

Lake Fannie Hooe is located in Fort Wilkins State Park on the Keweenaw Peninsula near Copper Harbor. Local tales related that the beautiful young woman Fannie Hooe had drowned in the lake, or got lost in the woods while picking blueberries and was never seen again

“It’s a perfect day to walk in the wood, Dan.”

“Yes, good that you walk with me, Sally.”

“We can pick some blueberries.”

“Lovely ideas. You like making blueberries muffins, I like to eat.”

“Oh, look. A lady walking by herself.”

“She looks frantic, she must be lost.”

“Let’s find out.”

“Humm… She disappeared.”

“Oh, Dan, it was Fannie Hooe. Some people saw her. She’s still finding her way out of the wood.”

“I thought she returned to the family home in Virginia.”

“See that white house down the hill? She lived there. The light goes on and off.”
