Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
A Lost Cause
|“Is that the beacon, Master? The light?”
“Won’t the natives see it?”
“What of it? Another UFO sighting won’t make a difference.”
“So we give them up for good?”
“That’s what I’ll recommend.”
“How can they be so stupid? How long have we watched them? Thousands of years?”
“Yes. And each time we thought they were getting somewhere: another war, or genocide.”
“You’d think so many people would have made progress by now.”
“The dominant cultures are elitists, they keep the masses uninformed. This maintains their power. Stupid people hate otherness. Gender, skin-colour, ancestry… They’re hopeless.”
“Right. Let’s go.”
The task of the challenge 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.
Last week I was insanely busy and very late with replies and comments. I’m sorry and hope to do better this week.
