Friday Fictioneers – Ice

24 April, 2015

It’s only as I type this entry that I realise – last week’s photo prompt from Rochelle was a fire, this week it’s ice. Is that a coincidence or planned? I can’t answer that. But I can answer this pic:


with 100 FriFic words. Admit it, you’re a teeny bit curious what words I’ve selected  this week aren’t you? Well here they are…


He had never had to travel this far north to hunt before. But as temperatures had risen slowly, steadily these last summers, the Arctic ice had thinned. Any surviving animals had retreated.
Ahead were shapes and sounds that were new to him. Perhaps here he could finally trap and kill, silence the hunger and exhaustion that were threatening to overwhelm him.
A crack echoed across the blank white landscape. A sharp, sudden, agonising pain. He fell, succumbed.


Olaf lowered his rifle, raised his binoculars. His shot had been accurate again this time. But the bears were becoming braver, venturing closer.


  1. WOW! Olaf is a crack shot! Good story – very entertaining! Nan 🙂

  2. Don’t shoot the polar bears! Big meanie, the Eco Friends will swoop down and do battle!

  3. Feel sad for those bears whose homes are being steadily taken away. Nice one.

  4. Man against nature–the odds are not good for man…

  5. This is excellent! But it is so sad. I feel bad for the polar bear.

  6. Oh! Nice twist. I wasn’t expecting that. Well done.

  7. Ack. Olaf deserves to fall into a crevace. Great take on the prompt.

  8. Nice set up and a most surprising ending. Sad story.

  9. Dale permalink

    Scarily close to the truth…

  10. Excellent twist. Caught me right off-guard. Well done.

  11. Well done. A great twist to a sad story.

  12. Didn’t see that coming!Excellent tale.
    Rosey Pinkerton

  13. Not sure who to root for in this one! Nicely done.
