Friday Fictioneers – Camp

2 December, 2016

It was one of my highlights of the year this week – I got to start opening the windows on my Maltesers advent calendar. O Joyous Day!

Not the only Joyous Day this week of course – Wednesday, like every Wednesday, was Rochelle‘s FriFic Email Day. This week’s pic for pondering

comes from Jan Wayne Fields. You can read everyone’s 100 words of fiction over in the People’s Republic of Frogtopia where the little blue fella lives.

And you can read my story here. Leave a comment if you want…

 

 

I had only intended a weekend visit. Friday’s news showed the first protesters gathering across the fields and meadows where the new railway was planned, and I decided to take them supplies and support. I sat with them, talked, understood them.

But when Sunday evening came, returning to an office, working for corporate profits, had lost its appeal. I called my girlfriend with the last of my phone battery and told her I was staying.

Today, we are in tents, the developers in trucks. Soon, we will climb the trees with chains and concrete blocks. This battle is just beginning.

    Interesting take on the prompt. Good build up to the decision to stay.

  5. Well done! I love this.

  6. Ah, a civil decision. If only more people would do the same.

  7. A big choice. Sounds like he’s happy with staying. Good for him

  8. What an uplifting story.
    I am cheering on this spirit!

  9. Such an encouraging tale of newly found commitment. Good one.

  10. Ironic, don’t ya think?

    Nice work, TRG.

  11. Sadly as long as the law is on the side of the developers demonstrations stand little chance. They raise people’s awareness, though, which is a good thing the next time people vote. There is far too much development with little regard to nature or human rights. Greed can be found at the root of it. Good writing, RG. 🙂 — Suzanne
