Flash Friday Fiction

Posting from far away again…this time, Rome.  This picture made me think of NYC and the following dialog emerged.

Word Count: 99

Future Perfect

“Hey – look at this old vid. Wanna see what’s on it?”
“Sure. Hit play and see if it works.”
“Kinda boring – just this old cityscape at night.”
“Hey wait – what’s that in the corner streaking in?”
“Dunno – a plane? Doesn’t look like it’s going to stop.”
“Oh my god – it just blasted into that building. Why?”
“Shit – look at the flames. Those people are doomed!”
“I guess we’ll never know how it turns out – it just faded to black.”
“It makes me happy we don’t live in those times any more. I’m glad we’ve figured out world peace.”
“Coffee?”
“Sure.”

    How was papal craziness? Crowds that big kind of scare me.

  2. For one who lived through this kind of thing, you really captured it all too well. The shock, the confusion…unexpected how the story was told and the ending. May we all someday see that day when the world is at Peace!

Tell me something good.....
