Phillipe felt alive as his hand flew over the page, copying the manuscript by candlelight. He invited others to the Abbey to help copy texts that would be shared with the masses. Savoring the moment, he raised his face toward the brilliant stars peeking through the skylight. Stars made brighter by the absence of man-made light.
After the Event, the world dimmed and a quietness replaced the constant noise. There would be no more staring at screens. The deed done, people would never know he was the cause. Phillipe didn’t mind, the world was as it should be.
“Friday Fictioneers” is a weekly challenge hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff Fields, to write a story using only 100 words in response to a photo prompt. This week’s photo was provided by Roger Bultot. For nearly a year now, I have enjoyed starting off my weekend by writing a story. If you would like to join in with this encouraging group of writers or read their stories from this week, click HERE.
