Friday Fictioneers: Tina’s Exchange

Thank you to everyone for joining in this week (28/07/17), and reading/liking/commenting on each other’s stories. You don’t have to be a Friday Fictioneer to read/like/comment on the stories on offer so please don’t be shy, there is a mix of styles and storylines all inspired by the same photo. This week’s photo was provided by © J Hardy Carroll.

Thanks, as ever, to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers so congenially. Definitely the hostess with the mostess!

The following one hundred word flash fiction is my second story based around this week’s photo prompt. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed reading yours.

Tina’s Exchange by Kelvin M. Knight

Go on, I dare you! The voice crackled out of the cradled handset. Double dare you!

Stripped back to her rebellious childhood, Tina was compelled to reach out. The moment her fingers brushed the ancient telephone, more appeared. Left and right, telephones repeated into the distance as though distance no longer existed.

Neither now does time.

What? Tina’s voice crackled out of the cradled handset. Where am I?

The exchange.

What exchange? Voices howled out of every handset.

My judgment; your soul.

I’m sorry, pleaded Tina.

Click. A waterfall echoed inside her telephone. And she knew. She was on hold.

  1. A tale of cosmic revenge. Just one catch – what is the “more” in the setence “The moment her fingers brushed the ancient telephone, more appeared” – more fingers? more telephones?.
