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:
Genre: Humor Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
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.”
