Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to another round of Friday Fictioneers, courtesy of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Again I’ll take our photo prompt and create a short, 100-word story for your reading pleasure. Here is this week’s prompt:
Pay phone GOODBYES
Darla answered the phone on the first ring.
“Cyrus! Thank heaven, where are you?”
“Doesn’t matter. Listen Darla, I don’t have much time. The patrol will be here any minute to pick me up.”
“It’s the only way. I’ve got to face what I’ve done or we’ll never have any peace. They’ll take me back to Agora for trial.”
“I’ll never see you again.”
“When this is all over, I’ll find you.”
“I…” The line went dead as Cyrus was teleported onto a waiting patrol ship.
Three thousand miles away, Darla dissolved into tears.
