Friday Fictioneers–3 January 2014–Battle Plan

Happy New Year, Fictioneers!

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields has started the year off with a bang–and a photo prompt–for our 100-word story. My story follows the prompt:

Battle Plan

The step-step-step of marching feet drummed on the pavement as the advancing army neared. My siblings and I stole a peek out the window. Alarmed, we hurriedly gathered our belongings, slipped out the back door, and made a beeline for the fortress our father had built. Soon we were joined by others who knew of our hiding place. We spent the afternoon forming a plan of action–until we were interrupted by voices and shouting in the distance. That’s when the rest left me all alone. I was tagged with lookout duties while everyone else ran home to eat dinner.

Are you ready to try something new in 2014? Enlist in Friday Fictioneers and tell us a 100-word story inspired by the photo prompt. Do it!
