Zounds! Thursday’s arrival brings the usual subconscious mucking about for a 100 word story based on the photo Madison Woods provides every week on her blog. I welcome constructive criticism so let me know what you think!
Story is below the photo. Thanks for reading!
Little Joseph drew close and looked up at me with big eyes.
“I brought you here to show you something,” I said. “Look across the valley, what do you see?”
“Rusty old towers. Momma said never go there.”
“Eh, yes, good. It was a city, once. Full of people and light. But God came down one day
and said, ‘Look at these people, masters of land and sky, there is no limit to what they can do.’
“And so He scattered us across the face of the Earth and all the lights went out.”
The boy shivered and looked away.
