Time flies, and it is time for a new 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.
If you wonder about the C in the title: it means that I welcome constructive criticism, according to the guidelines of the Friday Fictioneers Concrit Subgroup.
Such A Beautiful Day
It’s a beautiful day, perfect for the vintage car rally. At lunchtime, Violet and I are leading the field.
“Celia, look!” Violet points at the one-legged serf who hands out lunch. “What…?”
“Let’s find out.” I beckon the woman over.
“Did you fight in the war, dear?”
“Yes Ma’am, I helped chase them rebels back over their wall.”
“Well done.” It was us who built the wall, but I don’t have the heart to correct her. Serfs don’t need to concern themselves with politics.
Violet and I take off again, firmly set on winning. Life is good in the Empire.
