All the stars in the sky (Friday Fictioneers)

August 13, 2020
PHOTO PROMPT -Copyright-Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

It was a time of excess and flamboyance. Celebrities from the galaxy-wide hypernet shows, the dramatic stars, the comedic performers, the stunt-stars and the hoons, the crews and the bosses all gathered for a week of insanity.

Hypernet performers!

It was every child’s dream to be one. Every lover’s fantasy to spend a night with one. Every writer’s desire to create a personality for one.

And everyone wanted what this week bought.

That award.

The one that told everyone they were THE BEST.

I’m a caterer.

I was there.

I saw what happened that night.

Now I’m the wanted one.

This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

  1. You really built a world there, Laurie

  2. Good to know the same problems of this world exist in the future sci fi landscape too. Another excellent piece of world building Laurie.

  3. No one likes their night of insanity spoiled by a spilled drink or poisoned food – intentionally or otherwise.
    Love the hypernet idea.

  4. This certainly leaves a lot of room for imagination! Good writing–but what, pray tell, is a hoon?

    • Thank you!
      Aha, a hoon is Aussie slang for a young driver who drives dangerously fast and wildly, spinning the car or drag racing. A bit like an illegal stuntdriver
      Thanks for asking. It surprises me what words translate easily in English and what Aussie words raise eyebrows haha

  5. I wasn’t familiar with ‘hoon’ either! Great storytelling.

  6. Things happen. Great little story. Enjoyed reading it.

  7. Dear Laurie,

    I love the way you built the scene (and I learned a new word “hoon”) and then ended with something of a cliffhanger. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  8. I like the narrator’s laying out the groundwork which quickly zooms in to her. Makes me want to know what happened and why they think it is her fault.

  9. A very intriguing story – or the beginning of a novel?
