Friday Fictioneers – The Future


I sense it. I can almost grasp it. The future. Sitting just outside my window, like my first shiny new car on a festival. That time is not here yet, but anticipation brings it into the present. One day, soon, this will all be over. We’ll emerge, blinking in the sunshine, laugh and greet old friends. Now it’s clear who we really depend on. We’ll put an end to misery and want. We can build back better.

Can’t we?

Friday fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a 100-word story in response to a photo prompt. You can find other stories here

  1. I love the optimism, but I’m afraid the uncertain question at the end sums it up – we won’t. We’ll breath a sigh of relief that it’s over, and go back to the way we were before – with added unemployment, pay freezes and diminished social services. I really hope I’m wrong.

      1. That’s awfully hard for the painter, waitress, and barber. About the only secure thing is working for the government. Stay home and get paid. Don’t get me started on closing schools! Oh, my. Not too bad for me. I get to write comments on other people’s posts. Working from home? Yep. No pay? Yep. 😀
