It’s time for Friday Fictioneers. Writers around the globe attempt to write a 100-word story based on a photo prompt.
Thanks to Claire Fuller for this week’s photo. I have a feeling it will bring about a whole array of stories this week. Claire is the author of Our Endless Numbered Days, an amazing book that will stay with you long after you’ve put it down. I highly recommend it!
Friday Fictioneers wouldn’t be possible without the leadership of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Thanks for all you do, Rochelle.
And now my story, set sometime in the future…
“I was told to come here,” said Oscar, presenting a wrinkled, half sheet of paper.
“Ah,” the man behind the glass said, pushing the paper back.
“Is my book here or not?”
“Hmm, dunno. If it goes inside the universal vault, the black hole will spit it out… somewhere. Information never vanishes. Don’t ask me what that means–”
“What about that other fluffy business…thingy?”
“The cloud? Impossibly full.”
The stuffy room was filled with blank stares, like an ER but without any visible injuries.
“Here’s your number. Wait time: 5 years, 3 months, and 11 days. My advice to you. Write another book.”
