The Friday Fictioneers is a writing challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The task of the challenge is to write a story in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the little frog. Reciprocation is the life of this challenge!
“Come on Casey, stop crying.”
“I want my books, Mum.”
“You’ll get something much better when we’re on the ship. There’ll be a room full of interactive Holo-panels, you can read, listen, play, or watch a movie. And once we’re on the planet you’ll get your own panels.”
“But I want my dinosaurs. And Pooh.”
“They’ll be there.”
“But they’re in the computers. They aren’t real.”
“And the ones in the books are?”
“U-huh. They step out of the books and really play with me. Not like some boring program…”
“All right. Take one book. I’ll leave something else behind.”
Thank you all for asking, I’m feeling OK again.
My muse needed a lot of tickling this week. She told me she’s tired and needs some rest, but I insist on the Friday Fictioneers story at least…
