It’s time for Friday Fictioneers. Writers from around the globe are challenged to compose a 100-word story, based on a photo prompt.
Thanks to the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for dedicating her time and energy (even when she doesn’t feel well and is in complete pain). Thanks to Madison Woods for this week’s photo.
All are welcome to participate. Why not write a story of your own? Here are instructions to guide you.
I considered writing something more profound, but well, I couldn’t resist.
New and Energizing
Genre: Humor/Horror (101 words)
“These little things?” Two exterminators hung outside the McDonald’s equipped to take care of the “problem.”
Inside, moths as big as hamburgers hung in layers from the ceiling.
“Moths have never killed anyone, right?”
“Nah. Bugs love ’em.”
In fact, moths are a food source for many animals.
“That’s funny. They usually go for natural fibers, not this synthetic crap.” A man knocked at the moth babies chewing a hole through a booth.
Later…McDonald’s stocks are up and folks are lined outside the door with the company’s claim of a new and energizing, protein-rich burger. People need their protein, after all.
