Friday Fictioneers is a group of bloggers who write 100-word stories after being inspired by a photo posted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The photos are taken by other Friday Fictioneers. It is not a closed group, you can join in by adding your link to the blue frog linkup. We are allowed to use the photo in our post and encouraged to leave each other comments. I write my story before I read any of the other writers’ creations, although I do often read Rochelle’s post before I write mine since it is right under the photo of the week. This week’s story is 101 words. I thought the bridge looked creepy but I didn’t want to write a scary story, so I went with an apocalyptic story instead. Leave me your thoughts on my story below.
Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Skylar didn’t like heights. Captain Wheeler tried to reassure her by telling her after they crossed this bridge there would be cabins up ahead. They had been walking for weeks, looking for a hideout from the aliens, and might have finally found one.
As a teenager, she was expected to keep up and not whine. Skylar decided to be thankful that the boards on the bridge blocked her view of the raging river below.
The little band of rebel humans crossed the bridge, with tall Wheeler leading the way. Getting to stare at his behind was another reason to be thankful.
