He started typing in the code, eyes on the minute hand as it inched closer to the designated time and hit ‘Enter.’ Within no time the tent was dismantled as he placed it above his laptop.

This month’s WEP theme is ‘Red Wheelbarrow’. I know it’s a bit early to post this month’s post but the other prompts resulted in a mental picture of a person carting away a tent in a wheelbarrow (& I couldn’t resist it).
The photo prompt has been given by Jan Wayne Fields at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The word prompt (Code) has been given by Girlie on the Edge hosted by Denise Farley. The location (Middle Torch Key, Florida) of the piece was suggested by Pegman.
