“We’ll be Right Back?”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Michael picked up the portable, wireless  microphone and stepped into the crowded street.  He detested doing this assignment, but Joe was the boss and Michael did sleep with Joe’s sister.  Consequences…  He cleared his throat.

“Ladies, Gentlemen, and those who are not yet sure.  We are here on Main Street and going on behind me is the 32nd hour of the “Dance of the Apocalypse”.  As you may know, this parade started shortly after one of the citizens received a ‘message’ from beyond that said the world would end at noon today.  It is now 11:59:56 and we are not seeing…”

      Thank you. I love seeing how others see my stories; the plots they twist and the things they mention.

    I guess it didn’t matter why he was covering the event or if if he were.

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
