Sometimes the most revolutionary acts are the ones no one really notices. Unless they look really, really hard. What may have looked like a useless payphone to most looked like freedom to him; a lone relic from the old world unvarnished by the tyranny of the new. He didn’t have much in the old world, but he made do. Sometimes his collection of forgotten coins from payphone slots paid for an entire meal. In the cashless society he now occupied, the options weren’t as plentiful.

But the opportunities for rebellion were.

If people only read the signs.

I hope everyone enjoys my modest little offering. This is the first time I’ve dipped my toe in the Friday Fictioneers ocean in quite some time. And I do mean ocean. When I first started, it was a mere pond. But the ripples of growth came quickly. What was once a merry little band of writers has become a full blown movement! Things certainly do change. But what hasn’t changed are the great selection of 100 word stories you can find every Friday if you visit the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog at http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/. Read, enjoy, comment, and maybe even find some inspiration to try a story of your own. I may take long trips away from the Fictioneers, but it’s nice to know that no matter how full the bandwagon is, there is always room when I decide to visit!

Happy imagining everyone!

    • Thanks Perry! I’m still getting in fighting shape, but It’s good to be back in the trenches!!!

    • The first words I saw in your comment were ‘Dr. Who’. You had me right there! 😉

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your link!

    • Thank you Janet! I included the $ as a hint to what his intentions were. Not sure if I conveyed it or not, but that’s the fun of 100 word stories. Lots of room for interpretation!

      It’s great to be back!

  1. Dear John,
    I’m happy to see you back among us. You packed a powerful punch in 100 words. Like Janet I love the $ in your title. Apropos. You’ve painted a plausibly chilling picture.
    shalom,
    Rochelle

    • Thank you so much Rochelle. Very happy to be back! I see that you are piloting the vessel that is Friday Fictioneers quite deftly! 🙂

  2. And that world has definitely become a tough place. I appreciate you stopping by Sarah! Thanks for the kind words 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for catching on to that. For me that was the hook of the entire story, it was also the first line I wrote for the story. 🙂

    I appreciate your visit!!
