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. My story continues from last week. Two people with different beliefs meet. Can they make it work. Let’s find out what is next for them.

“Are you hurt? Let me help you get away from these crazy protesters.”
“I am not hurt. CRAZY? We are not crazy.”
That is when Roger noticed her fallen placard. The thought that this beautiful women was one of these crazy Democrats, sent his mind racing like a tube on an uncontrollable river. He made up his mind and plunged on.
“This may sound kind of crazy. Do you want to get out of here and get a cup of coffee?”
“Weren’t you heading inside to hear that mad man speak? I could use a break.”
“He is not mad but I could miss it this once. I’ll text my dad who is probably already inside.”
After sending the text, Roger and his new acquaintance walk away from the protesting crowd.
With a coffee shop nearby, they crossed the street and entered the little shop.
Even though the shop was crowded, Roger managed to grab a table in the corner.
“I forgot to ask you your name? I am Roger.”
“Pleased to meet you. I am Julie.”
Sitting across from each other, both wondered where to find common ground.
