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!
