“Roller coaster”

Scott L Vannatter – 100 words


“You got dees?”  Armando asked Tellan.

“Sure,” Tellan wished he was as confident as he sounded.  His bravado had gotten him into trouble before.  This was not going to be an exception.  He just hoped it was not his last.

He stared down the stone alleyway.  The slope was steep.  Each one-brick level had two 1/2 bricks raised up to the level of the stones above, a kind of track of stone.  The tire was wider than the brick, so the ride was perilous.

He got it up to 30, then cut the engine in idle.

“Here we go, Amigo!”

Friday Fictioneers’ photo prompt for this week:

100-word story for Friday Dec 7, 2012:

Well, I am late this week.  I try to post on Friday, but got behind in my posts and forgot.  So, I will post this on Sunday and hope you all still get to read it.  I will read a lot of them tomorrow (12/9) when mine is posted.  Happy writing!!!


Heading Home – 12/8/2012


Scott stood in the dimly lit room looking at all the strangers.  He saw the hallway with the bright light at the end.  He walked to the hallway and stopped.  A voice spoke quietly to him.

“Come on in.”

“You know, she’s all alone right now with no one to look after her.  I don’t think I can come right now.”

“Okay, you don’t have to.”

Scott opened his eyes to find himself nearly immobile, in a hospital bed.  He had been there for ten days.

Quietly, he realized that he had chosen the toughest path, but never regretted it.


            True Story – This is, pretty basically, what happened when I had my stroke and was in the ER and after.  It seems interesting to me that when I finished the last line I had exactly 100 words – then again, maybe it wasn’t so “interesting”.  It’s just the truth.




Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun!
