Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Three men sat in a chamber, whose windows opened onto the stars. The youngest, whose tower it was, said, “Three planets will come together at his birth. He will be a king.”
The second, white-bearded and with piercing eyes, spoke in a deep voice. “The prophecies agree that he will be a son of God.”
The third was neither old nor young. His voice was light, sing-song. “I have cast the yarrow stalks many times. Violent men will snatch his life.”
“A strange end.”
“Nevertheless, we are called to travel west to witness his birth.”
By daybreak they were gone.
