Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story about an unusual plan to escape the police begins after the photo.
“Are you certain this will work?” said Callie.
“Of course!” said Rupert. “It’s perfect for making a getaway with the diamonds. No car chases, no airport security.”
“But these hay bales stink!”
“We’ll just wait inside the bales until they’re delivered to some farm, far from security, and most importantly, no where near any cops.” said Rupert. “This can’t fail.”
After waiting an hour the jostling hay bale cart finally stopped. They heard the driver speak with someone.
“Busy day in the stables?”
“You see?” whispered Rupert.
“Always is with hundreds of cops collecting their horses for their daily patrol.”
Every Wednesday, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields leads the Friday Fictioneers to the lush fields of our imagination. There, ideas are harvested and collected into bales of flash fiction stories 100 words long. We’d love to have you join us a-grain and a-grain! Here’s this week’s prompt: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2014/02/26/28-february-2014/
