Friday Fictioneers – February 15/13

Friday Fictioneers is sponsored by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.  The idea is to write a 100 word story with a beginning, middle and end based on the photo prompt.

Perspective

(102 words)

“Aw, dad.  Really?”  He kicked at the metal leg.

“Yes, really, and take it easy.  This happens to have been done by a famous sculptor who ended up being imprisoned for his political views.  It’s incredible that it’s even still standing.”

He exaggerated his movements, sighing as he placed the headphones on his ears.

“Well I think it’s quite something, John.” She stroked the long arm.

Kelly placed her palm as flat as she could against the outstretched hand.

“Maybe everyone was just mad at him for making such a weird hand.  It’s way bigger than anyone’s.  Here, you try it, daddy.”

  1. This reminds me of the poem about the blind men and the elephant. Each of them touched a different part and thus had a different perspective on what the elephant looked like. The conversation sounded very realistic.

  2. 102 words. here’s where you can save two: “He exaggerated his movements, sighing as he placed the headphones on his ears.” normally, headphones are only put on ears, so you stop the sentence after “…on.”

    also, here: “Here, you try it, daddy.” daddy should be capitalized.

    well done.
