Here we all are for another week. Today we’re in a virtual city hall in a large city. Our hostess for this gathering is the talented and gracious writer and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to write an original story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Kent Bonham. Thanks, Kent.

To read the other stories by the group, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

The link for this week’s stories is as follows:

THE BOOK OF THE ICKYCONIANS by P.S, Joshi

If I’d known the danger I’d face, even I, Zelda Prichard, Head of the Outer Reaches Planetary Rangers, might have fled in fear.

I strode into City Hall, having only been told it was a vital mission. There I saw a seemingly alien book recently taken from the underground vaults and on display for our viewing.

The President had flown in on Space Force One and was also viewing the book for the first time. She turned to me and stressed, “Commander Prichard, it’s your official duty to return this sacred book to the Ickyconians, our sneaky, nasty sworn enemies.”

    • Thanks, Rochelle. They are a nasty group of aliens. The Earth probably came in possession of the sacred book when they captured some planetary thieves who’d stolen it to try and resell it, perhaps back to the Ickyconians. I’m so happy you enjoyed the story. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

  1. Fun, fun, FUN! That’s what it’s all about in this story. Very enjoyable. I had to laugh because the picture I took is from my hometown’s City hall. hahahaha! Nice, Suzanne! πŸ™‚

  2. Big fan of Zelda and even her last name…but was that a high horse I saw her having to get off or was I reading it wrong πŸ™‚ lol. Nicely done Suzanne.

    • Thanks, Ifeoma. Zelda appreciates you’re a fan. She gets a little carried away with her position once in a while, but she’s a good person to depend on when things get tough. I’m so happy you enjoyed the story. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

    • Thanks, Bjorn. It’s a tricky mission that’s for sure. I’m so happy you loved the story with the names and hook. I don’t think the President dislikes Zelda. She chose her because of her success with past missions. Also, perhaps no one else wanted the job. πŸ˜€ —- Suzanne

    • Thanks, Margaret. Yes, it’s indeed challenging as missions go. They’re a nasty group of aliens. I believe in her ability to succeed, though. I’m so happy you enjoyed the story. I’m working on some things in my writing including pacing. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne
