Friday Fictioneers hostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields will welcome you into the Friday Fictioneers group if you’d like to take your best shot at creating a 100-word story prompted by this picture. The photo is courtesy of Adam Ickes.
My story is below the photo.
BRIDGE TO INSANITY
“So, Mr. President, you’re having a recurring dream?” the doctor asked.
“Yes. At least a dozen times this past year. I’m walking down a long, narrow, wooden bridge. Ahead I see the pavilion where a peace treaty signing is scheduled. I know they’re all there, waiting for me. But I can’t get there!”
“Because the damn bridge keeps growing longer with every step I take!”
“And you think the dream means something particular?”
“Of course. And that’s what’s driving me insane.”
“It means there’s never going to be an end to war.”
