Welcome to Friday Fictioneers! We are a community of writers from around the world who post 100-word stories between Wednesday and Friday each week. The stories are all based on a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog. Please visit Rochelle’s blog for more information…and join us if you wish!
This week’s awesome photo is by fellow writer Doug MacIlroy. Thank you, Doug!
Happy Earth Day
by Jan Brown
“The humans have their lights on again. Why? Is their eyesight weak?”
“Perhaps it’s affected by the cold. They’re not permanent residents like us. They need time to adapt to the harsh conditions.”
“Harsh?!? What’s harsh is the fact that our icecap is melting at an alarming rate. And it’s their fault!”
“OK, calm down.”
“I’ll be calm once our continent is not collapsing under our feet. They come here to measure the damage. They take videos of the disaster they created. But they’re helpless to stop it.”
“Yeah, happy Earth Day.”
With that, the penguins waddled away.
