Who wants to know (Friday Fictioneers)

March 5, 2020
PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

It’s how we pass messages back and forth. To keep hidden, to keep safe, you didn’t advertise who you were or where you were at. I heard there used to be systems online (whatever that was) where you could broadcast your whereabouts and your opinions to anyone anywhere in the world.

If that’s true, it sure was a different time.

A more innocent time.

Now, you don’t tell nothing you don’t have to. And you don’t hang about. In and out, quick as lightning. Don’t linger, don’t talk.

Someone wants to find you, you take a risk.

Check the board.

This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

  1. I loved the idea of a vegetable code

  2. Secret codes and cyphers, this makes eating the evidence much easier. Well done.

  3. I like the idea of a code written and this being a message board. Good stuff.

  4. I wonder/worry about all of the data that is being so freely shared out in cyberia that’s all being compiled. You highlight it well in your story.

  5. A mysterious rendition , private lives remain private. Nice one.

  6. Liked the staccato rhythm and voice in this story. Nicely done!

  7. Dear Laurie,

    Intriguing to think of these times as more innocent. Are they telepathic?

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    • Ooooo I wonder!
      Thanks Rochelle. I think even in the darkest times we will find a way to communicate.

  8. Like the take on the prompt.

  9. Great take, Laurie. It’s interesting to think we’ll always communicate and use whatever we have to communicate safely.

    • I do truly think we will always tell stories. The medium doesn’t matter. Thanks for reading Michael

  10. “Giggles” means rebellion I think
