It’s time for a new prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, which is graciously provided by our Fairy Blog Mother 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.
I wanted to write a bit of action this week. I’m not sure I got the meaning across. I’d be grateful for feedback on this.
“Hurry, Mattie, troopers are coming!” Darlene shot one tracker down and bludgeoned two more.
Matt plugged his ancient com-pad into the terminal and hammered out code. Darlene hoped he knew what he was doing.
“Got it.” Matt grabbed his pad and ran.
Listening intently for pursuers, Darlene sprinted after him, hissing, “Down that hole.”
They squeezed into a ventilation shaft and wiggled away at top speed.
“Was it worth it?” Darlene asked when they had reached a safe distance.
“A complete e-book with construction schematics. Everything from historical to solar-powered.“
“And freezers.” Matt grinned triumphantly. “We’ll have ice-cream.”
