I’m still far too busy to think straight. Sorry if I haven’t replied in time, or didn’t manage to read your story. I’m not sure my story this week qualifies for beginning, middle and end, it’s more of a middle… but it’s the best I can come up with right now. I love the picture, it is so peaceful.
The task for Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ Friday Fictioneers is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.
Call me Jasziu
“So, Jasmine, how do you like your little boat?”
“You’re such a tease, Scott. I like it very much.”
“Your smile’s so smug… the interior decoration was your idea?”
“These cedar dashboards–very smooth, excellent craftsmanship… it smells good, too. Mind you, it’ll be a pain to care for…”
“I knew you’d say that.”
“And the Ahimsa silk panels… touching them is pure delight. Your decor is a perfect tribute to Earth.”
“I’m glad you appreciate. So?”
“We accept. Now that my cyberlink-twin’s been installed, our spaceship shall adopt her name: the Ziusudra”
“Yes, Jasmine, Captain.”
“Call me Jasziu.”
Edit: I added a word, otherwise the Ahimsa gets too confusing. I’ve seen it used without the silk for silk, but apparently it has more uses. Ziusudra is the Sumerian predecessor of Noah. The flood myth is very similar although there are some differences (one god, Enlil, punishes humankind and creates the flood; the other one, Enki, helps by warning Ziusudra.)
