Friday Fictioneers – Bike

19 July, 2013

It’s always a pleasure to see Rochelle’s email every Wednesday and to mull over the promp for a day or two until a story comes to mind. Here is this week’s pic:

My hundred words follow. I would love to hear your thoughts…

 

I didn’t think anyone outside of bad comedies ever double-takes, but that’s exactly what I did as I passed the bike securely locked to a tree. I bent to inspect it; the scratch on the front fork, the wear on the saddle, the blue cable-lock on the handlebars. I recognised it as MY bike, despite the year since it had been taken.

I took my keyring from my pocket, opened the cable-lock with its long-unused small blue key and, smiling, fastened it around the tree. The bike had passed from my hands, but now it was useless to the thief.

  1. That would be an odd stroke of luck. Nice take on the prompt.

  2. and now i’m hearing ‘instant karma’ in my head 😉
    this is great, I would love to see the look on the thief’s face when he/she comes back, will he/she rage and try to yank off the lock or will he/she just leave it there and go steal someone else’s bike and get caught in the act and thrown in jail?
    love this! 😀
