Rendezvous – Friday Fictioneers

Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, a weekly writer’s link-up, hosted by the lovely and gracious Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Writers around the globe compose a 100-word story based on a photo. This week’s photo was provided by Sandra Crook. Thank you, Sandra. It looks such a lovely spot, but in my story today, a place of intrigue. A little serious, a little silly, using the props of the photo.

If you would like participate, instructions are here. All are welcome!

Rendezvous 

Martin flattened against the walls. Outside his peripheral vision, a couple walked as one, heads together, a laugh between them; an isolated man dragged his pack on the cobblestones. Someone always watched; he caught a shadow in the dormer at 12:00.

A whistling man approached and bumped hands with him, revealing the  symbol: a flame, encircled and crossed with swords, tattooed on his wrist. He passed a bag into Martin’s hand,  jumped on his bicycle and turned a corner.

Inside the bag was a donut. He recalled the message: sugar of the gods. He smiled, mounted the available bicycle and followed him.

      1. Jolly, I love that! You don’t hear that one very often. I’m pleased to meet you. You must have all kinds of stories and I bet they’re jolly ones! Sorry, I can’t resist. 😀

    1. Thanks, Rochelle. I guess I was in the mood for something sweet or maybe it’s just in the air in this photo with those cobblestone streets. Glad you enjoyed it.

  1. Amy, Did you pause a second to think about the effect your story can have on donut-loving-dieters (like me) 🙂

    Nice build-up of suspense and sweet twist at the end there.

    1. Hmmm….no! I’m in the same boat though if it makes you feel any better. I have a weakness for donuts. I just can’t say no to them. They have a great donut shop here where I live and my husband will buy a whole dozen, because you know they’re cheaper that way…then, of course, there are more to eat too! Thanks so much.

    1. I have some donuts at my house if you want to come over, Gah! I bought some today. For some reason, I’m in the mood for some. 🙂 Notice how I didn’t say “one.” I’ve never tried to fit in all the details. It was a fun challenge for myself.
