What you say? 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. For great justice!
Here’s the photo, story is below. Constructive criticism is always appreciated!

“Heraclitus said, ‘you can never step in the same river twice.'”
I picked up a rock, hefted it, tossed it up and down, discarded it.
You can never step in the same river once.
