Friday Fictioneers ~ July 5, 2013

Hello again readers! I know its not Friday yet, it’s July 4th and I would like to wish all Americans Happy Independence Day! Now all we got to do IS get independent. We used to be, unfortunately it’s slowly being taken away. Now that’s all I’ll say about it. Enjoy your holiday and stay safe everyone! Also, anyone with animals, please keep them inside on this night so they won’t get scared and run off. Most animals don’t like the fireworks so please keep them safe also!

This week’s picture was a hard one for me. Not sure if I did good or not. You be the judge. Maybe my mind went mushy in this humidity and heat we got after the record floods here in Alberta! It’s been a crazy time!

As always it’s hosted by our beloved Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, please click on her name to see the simple rules we try to follow when doing this. Also you can click on her name and then scroll down till you meet the little blue critter. Click on him and he’ll take you on a magic carpet ride to other stories from great writers.

For the thousandth time, Rachel began muttering. For the thousandth time, Miles tried to tune her out.

Come look at the stars, he says. 

It’ll be fun, he says.

Leave the phones in the car so there are no distractions, he says.

Rachel please! You know it was an accident!

The firefighters finally came to rescue them. They smiled to themselves when they heard Rachel.

Come look at the stars, he says.

After they all climbed down the ladder, one firefighter glanced at Miles as Rachel stormed off.




Sighing, Miles shook his head no.

“Not after I accidentally kicked the ladder down last night.”

  1. Dear Jackie,

    Yes, she says. You did a great job with the prompt. I laughed out loud at the end. Hopefully Rachel will one day see the humor in it, too.




  2. I liked the story but I liked your first intro paragraph as much, albeit in a very different way. 🙂 And that’s all I’ll say about that, too.



  3. I’m a little slow today (headache threatening to destroy me) so I had to read it through twice to get what actually happened, but when I did, I laughed. So, humour delayed, but still pretty funny, darling.


  4. I really liked this! I would have made a very minor change to the intro (message me if you’d care to discuss), but otherwise thought it was a home run!


    1. Thanks Maddie! I’m glad I have a mind too…I mean twisted….you know what I mean. 🙂


  5. Poor miles. Really enjoyed the attitude of the firefighters – could see them smirking.
