Friday Fictioneers – Security

30 September, 2016

I listened to a fair bit of the Trump/Clinton (Trumpton?) debate this week, and I was impressed at the way they got their points across in the tiny space of time they were strictly allowed after each question. But then I though they were getting what, two minutes per reply? So speaking at an average speed, they would get 250 words or so in for every answer. 250 words! Luxury! Over in the world of FriFic, we get a prompt pic ONCE A WEEK from official moderator Rochelle


like this one for example from regular FriFicer Amy Reese, and we only get ONE HUNDRED WORDS. No politician could cover their policies in so few words but over on Froggy Island, FFers are telling entire stories under that restriction.

Here is my manifesto for this week. Vote TRG. Or at least leave a comment.



My boots, finally broken in after three months working on my feet, squeak with every step on the buffed floor. The sound echoes around me as I walk through the empty corridors, checking everything is ready.

I can hear the crowds already forming outside, mostly young girls, shouting and singing. I can hear the road crew, unloading innumerable flight cases, setting up the equipment.

The band won’t be here for another few hours, arriving just before the show starts, when the arena is full, the crowd screaming with excitement.

And then I will press the button. I will see paradise.


  1. Oo0h powerful! That last line punched me in the gut. They might be watching you from now on….

  2. Ooooo crap! That last line…. I thought it was going somewhere else and now I am very disturbed. Well told. Very creepy

  3. Yeah that last line does send a chill down your spine. Nicely done

  4. Wow…I didn’t see that coming!

  5. Ugh. I will not vote TRG.
    I get very upset with pieces like this. In fact, down right angry.
    And I am a relatively non-retaliatory, turn-the-other-cheek style person
    Well, I just id’d your ISP and you better leave now as we’re coming to send you to paradise ASAP.


  6. Very creepy – love your intro too – more words!

  7. Eep, why did he even bother with these boots? Chilling, how he concentrates on these details (and you lead us astray). Not wrong. Not wrong at all. I did say that. 😉

  8. Yikes! That end beat took me by surprise. Very well done. I WILL vote for TRG.

  9. Great twist at the end, RG. That’s one reason I hate crowds. Those bombers always strike where they can do the most damage. Good writing. 🙂 — Suzanne
