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.

LONG WOODEN BRIDGE - ADAM ICKES

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!”

Why not?”

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.”

What?”

It means there’s never going to be an end to war.”

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
