Dancing Out In Space

Time for another entry in Friday Fictioneers challenge, courtesy of Rochelle Wissof-Fields. If you want to give it a try, check the info on her blog. 100 words more or less, inspired by a photo, here we go….

– I miss it.
– What?

– Life on Mars…I enjoyed the solitude and the winds. Do you remember the winds?
– I remember our first walks…and that one time I stole your hover chair.

– We were absolute beginners, but it was fun saving the world.
– Yes, we thought we could be heroes…never imagined the retirement would be so suffocating.

– I miss it.
– I know, you already said it.

– No, the hover chair. Why would anyone steal that?
– Well, we didn’t save the world from human stupidity. Here, let me carry you upstairs.

– You never let me down.
– And I never will.

– So now what?
– Let’s dance.

    Love the tribute but I feel you were perhaps influenced both by the photo and news of David Bowie’s death. You did a great job with the story. I loved it!

  2. Touching tribute – made me laugh through the sadness. Well done. I’ll be getting out the old vinyl collection this weekend and shedding a tear, but most of all taking a cue from your story and dancing!
