Welcome to Friday Fictioneers! We are a community of writers from around the world who post 100-word stories each week, based on a photo prompt provided by our effervescent leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s ominous-looking photo is by Dawn Q. Landau. Thank you, Dawn!
This week’s story features my favorite slackers, Kip and Dredge. It is their first appearance of 2014. Since we first met them more than a year ago, they’ve had eight adventures posted to the blog, seven of them for Friday Fictioneers. I hope you continue to enjoy them. Comments are welcome!
Kip and Dredge on Route 66
by Jan Brown
“Kip, why did you insist on taking your dad’s DeLorean? You said it was a movie prop!”
“Yeah, from something called Back to the Future.”
“In the movie, did the car light up, skid sideways, and wind up in a totally different location? Or are you just a terrible driver?”
“The DeLorean travels in time, not space. We’re at the western end of Route 66. Should be Santa Monica.”
“Maybe this is all that’s left of California. The ‘big one’ finally hit!”
“The big what?”
“Bummer. So…let’s drive back to Arizona and get some tacos!”
