Another week, and another prompt for the Friday Fictioneers graciously provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields
The task 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.
People like me who like and need constructive criticism label their posts with a C, according to the guidelines of the Friday Fictioneers Concrit Subgroup.
Trying the dialogue again…
Tulips and Daffodils
“Daffodils. Tulips and Daffodils. What were you thinking?”
“I… I only…”
“Yeah, right. Only wasting our precious soil. The plan was to boost morale with that picnic. But you…”
“I thought they liked them.”
“Liked them? They were crying. This is bad.”
“Where is Dr. Cameron?”
“General Larsson! An honour. She’s right there. Please…”
“Go! — Dr. Cameron, was it your idea to plant these flowers?”
“Good! It was the perfect demonstration of what terra-forming on Mars is all about. It’s not only about crops. Food fills our stomachs but beauty feeds our souls. Plant more flowers.”
