Road Fever – Friday Fictioneers

It’s time for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by our fairy blog mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s photo was provided by Al Forbes. Thanks, Al.

All are welcome to join in. The challenge is to write a 100-word story based on the photo. Give it a try.

I learned from a news story that driverless cars are not so far away. They say 10 years or less. Are you ready?

Road Fever

The Otto-Moto Driverless Car was Kevin’s solution for his sanity. He could sleep, eat, read, text, whatever the hell he wanted. Simply stress-free. No more anger. Not to mention, no more annoying searches for lost keys.

His driver Otto was more than willing to please. Driven by voice command, Otto was keenly aware, if not downright clairvoyant. When Kevin was near, the doors unlocked.

“Drive to work,” Kevin said. Otto ignored him. “Hey, wrong turn. Where are you going?”

“None of your business,” replied Otto. He proceeded to ram another driverless car off the road. “Punk. Learn how to drive.”
