Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

A quote: “People have discovered that they can fool the devil; but they can’t fool the neighbors.” ~~ Francis Bacon

I’ll start with a story …

***************************

When I noticed the hole in the garden, my first thought was “gophers!” Which, truth be told, filled me with dread. I hate the traps, shudder at poison.

I even toyed with selling the house and moving into an apartment to avoid the mess.

But then it was the pansies that went, one by one, so I dragged out the traps. Yet the next morning it was an azalea now missing.

Lights off, I stayed up and watched as the guy next door dug up my gardenia bush.

I left the gopher traps and laid another. This time tonight …

***************************

Now, it’s your turn.

    “Ignore the maid, she’s trustworthy. Ignorant.”

    Tabenar nodded. “So you see, Mr. Rosso, my formula will aerosolize and quickly spread around the globe. No one will object if we’ve convinced them it simply neutralizes excess greenhouse gasses.”

    Yelena emptied the wastebasket.

    “And your formula will then sterilize all lifeforms?”

    “Yes, Mr. Rosso. Our anti-natalist dream come true. The plan needs only your blessing… and financing.”

    A bang, and a red hole appeared in Tabenar’s forehead as he slumped to the ground.

    “Some of us love life, Mr. Rosso,” Yelena explained as she turned the .45 derringer to him.

  • Stephen Miller says:

    Nobody really knew who put the first one up. The timing left no question as to why, though. Less than twelve hours after the first arrests under the new speech code, a handful of red padlocks showed up on the fence outside the North Atlanta Reeducation Facility. They were cut down that day.

    The next morning, twice as many were hung up in their place.

    Two days later the fences in Boston, Louisville and Pittsburgh were decorated too.

    We are many. We are everywhere. You will not find us, unless we want you to. And we will never, never stop.
