Submitted for Sunday Photo Fiction
The Assignment: The idea of Photo Fiction is write a story of around 100-200 words (which is also called Flash Fiction) based on a photo as a prompt. In this particular photo fiction, the story must be based on the photo below.
For this week’s challenge, I am continuing a story I started for this challenge in early September and it comes to its conclusion today. To know the full story, I encourage you to read:
The Upload (The Conclusion)
Work on the old school began and Will was unable to find a new hideout. Stowing his gear in a shed to go out at night in search of food, Will located a door unlocked on Kindle Avenue and filled his sack with food. On the back porch, he didn’t notice that the porch light was a motion detector. Although it had been replaced with a Christmas light, it still came on at his movement and spread red glow over the backyard.
Known as a crank, often calling the police at the slightest noise, Mrs. Powers noticed the red glow. Someone was on her neighbor’s porch so she called the police. They didn’t believe her so she pulled on her boots, grabbed her coat and followed the intruder. Will entered a shed behind a home on Sheldon Avenue and Mrs. Powers called the police again using her cell phone. Somehow she was able to convince them to come and they stormed the shed. Will did not have enough time to use his computer to upload the police. They handcuffed him and confiscated his computer. With the assistance of computer experts, all of Will’s victims were downloaded by Christmas Eve.
