Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for all her work and organization. You can visit her site and read through the other Flash Fiction Friday postings at:
For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction. Come out of the heat and slip inside for a thrill.
Here’s my contribution:
Ride The Heat
Asphalt sucked against tread nubs as Victor pedaled down Main. At half past eight the heat was stifling; the sharp clacking of his queen of hearts against spokes smacked a duller tone. It was already record breaking heat.
Shimmering pools of what looked like water would evaporate as he approached. Victor rode faster hoping to experience splashing through the mysterious liquid.
The next pool remained and Victor thought Finally!
As he entered the mirage he felt a weird stretching sensation then heard something that sounded like a rubber band letting go.
The world around him was suddenly very foreign.
