#FridayFictioneers Orbs

I work on poetry over at A Full Cup of Tea, but dabble in some short stories and flash fiction here with the FRIDAY FICTIONEERS. Every Friday authors from around the world gather to share their 100-word stories based on the photo prompt hosted by Rochelle Wisoff. We offer support, constructive criticism, and encouragement to each other. Readers are encouraged to comment. My contribution for the week follows the photo prompt below…

Laughter rang out from the moonlit street as the ball bounced away. The children chased after their prey with unbridled enthusiasm finally catching up with the weary, red orb near the intersection at the bottom of the hill. Just as one of the smaller boys picked up the ball a bright light sped towards them. The driver tried to swerve but was unable to divert course as he approached the intersection. He drove right through the children and came to a stop at the bottom of the hill looking back at the child holding the ball in the eerie moonlight unfazed.

    I’d definitely be “fazed,” unless I was already dead.
