Logan glanced around. Where am I? He wondered. The last thing he remembered was being thrown into the air.

“What would you like, sweetie?” His mom sat across from him, looking up at something. “Rice Noodle or dim sum?”

“Huh?” Logan looked down at the table. There was a pair of chopsticks and a bottle of hot sauce in front of him. Was getting hit by that car a dream?

“What would you like, honey?” His mom asked impatiently.

“Oh, dim sum.” He answered absentmindedly while staring at the weird message on the chopsticks wrapper.

He looked out the window of the restaurant and saw the commotion. There was an old lady lying in the middle of the road, her groceries scattered all over. It was then Logan couldn’t help but exhale a deep breath of relieve even though he felt bad for the old lady. It was all a fantasy.

Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we write a flash fiction of 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above.  My contribution this week is actually the conclusion to my Sunday Photo Fiction.

  1. That’s quite surreal. I loved the confusion you were able to convey in such a small space. Well done.


  2. Dear Zheng (or am I addressing you by your surname?),

    One minor language correction: breath of relief…relieve is the verb form.

    Interesting how his mind turned an event into something else. You left me not quite sure what’s reality and what isn’t. Well done.
