I have some news to share here
which I’ll explain anon
but before that let me tell you
AnElephant is gone
so now I must inform you
I suffer from an affliction
I’m a compulsive writer
of what I call Sound Bite Fiction
Friday Fictioneers is a weekly challenge hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, to whom I owe a huge debt of gratitude.
The idea is to write a story of around 100 words inspired by the picture below.
It is almost dark when they appear.
I am walking along the old moor road, far from home.
I know from the roar of their engines that they are the Killie Boys.
Our sworn enemies.
I start to run.
I know that they have already seen me from the high point.
I turn down a dirt track, my feet flying, my breath gasping.
I know, as they do, that there is nowhere to hide out here in this barren country.
But I do not want to hide.
I just want to lead them into the traps we dug earlier.
