Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about reestablishing contact with a lost colony, begins after the photo.
Genre: Science Fiction/Humor
“As you can see,” said Don Acevedo with a sweep of his arm. “Though New Barcelona lost touch with Earth for 300 years, we’ve not lost our Spanish heritage.”
“Impressive,” said Martinez, still wearing his spacesuit. Everything looked like Spain, except everyone’s hat was so wide.
“And, especially, we retained our humanity. A gift!” He placed a red cape over Martinez’s shoulders. “Bulls are drawn to red, you know? You are lucky. It is time for the Running of the Bulls!”
The men nearby removed their hats to reveal horns growing from their heads.
Don Acevedo grinned menacingly. “You should run now.”
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers commune to right 100 word stories of flash fiction from a writer-donated photo. This week includes a lovely photo from Dee. Join us and write a story from the prompt which may be found here: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/11-april-2014/
