Egad! It’s Friday Fictioneers again! Every Friday, writers from all around the world write 100 word (or thereabouts) flash fiction based on a photo posted that Wednesday on Madison Wood’s blog.
I also have some exciting news this week: my poem Bruce King’s Chickens was published as part of the New Mexico Centennial project. You can see it here!
Shameless publicity plug aside, I proceed to my story. I welcome constructive criticism; without it I cannot grow as a writer. The photo prompt is below, my story follows. Thanks for reading!
“I knew this guy once. ESL teacher, like me. He drank a couple bottles of soju, jumped in the water at Kangneung, took off his swim trunks, and screamed ‘I’m naked in your fucking ocean’.”
She stared at me. “Are you all like that?”
“Yep. College kids who want to keep partying, people who wrecked their lives in America and looking to escape, and wanderers with nowhere else to go.”
She looked at me, puzzled, then asked with just a trace of an accent:
“Which one are you?”
I looked away. “Me? A little of all three I guess.”
