For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction. Come, feel the heat.
Here’s my contribution:
There had been a class trip organized, an effort to promote the trades as challenging and rewarding lines of honest work, areas often overlooked by the education system. Several stops were made: an auto-body shop; a Habitat For Humanity construction project; a tour of an organic farm. Rodney hovered behind, sucking Camels, flicking butts with disinterest.
The final stop was a cabinet-maker.
The shop is gone now, just a scar on the little side street, tufts of weed-grass clutching to pieces of blackened brick and twists of metal. The only good thing remaining, besides the memories, is a faded Polaroid.
