PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

Rochelle’s photo prompt this week for the  Friday Fictioneers 100 word story challenge is of a display of intriguing and ethereal objects, displayed outdoors.

Here is where the image led my imagination.

Price and Value

” Rufus it’s Ben, I’m in Kyoto market, buying for our client – you know – the rich one with no taste ?

I’ve found these exquisite kite / lanterns – translucent like moonlight. Apparently sold to the trader on the sly by a crooked monk. A find or what ! I’ll send you a photo of them to show our client. Ring me back.”

” Hi Rufus – what did he say ? What  ! Too flimsy ? Too handmade ? Too spooky ?

Huh. I’ve a mind to buy them myself, return them to the temple where they belong. Bye Ben “.
