Ari loved this short cut through town, the cobblestone alley dipping along. He’d align his tires just right over the ramps, practically gliding. It had become a competition on how fast he could deliver bread to the Shuk.
He was late, again. Last night was a doozy. He couldn’t help but linger in bed a moment more. Not with Amber wrapped around him. Months he pursued her forbidden fruit.
In the midst of his revelry he realized the brakes wouldn’t work. Yelling and waving he hoped desperately the two girls in front of him would get out of the way.

Friday Fictioneers is a group of writers who gather each week under the divine organization of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Rochelle provides a photo prompt and we are tasked to write a 100 word story, poem etc. Please make sure to check out other writers fiction. They never disappoint, at least not me.
I was unable to participate in this one, but I had a similar scenario in mind…hoping the girls would get out of the way of a guy who had kidnapped me and was trying to escape the police who were in hot pursuit.
Love it. Thanks Mamma.

Haha! Sounds like today’s is going to be the fastest bread delivery ever. Love the word ‘doozy’.
Delivery at the speed of lightning. Another kind of bolt from God. Doozy is a fabulous word. I simply can’t find enough occasions to use it. Thanks Mike.
So much disaster on this road! Nice job.
Thanks Helena. I suspect disaster has travel this route throughout history.
Whatever happens, something will be broken. Nice number.
Thanks Patrick. There is always a price for tasting forbidden fruit.
“Breaks” or “brakes”? I think disaster looms, whatever. Well done.
Ha! Thanks for the correction Sandra. Yes disaster looms and their is a price to pay.
