Shortcuts & Signs

“Are you sure that we’re supposed to be headed this way?”

“Yup, it’s a known shortcut.”

“I don’t know the language, but I’m pretty sure that sign said ‘Stop’.”

“Naah, there would have been a barricade instead of a road if we had to stop.”

“LOOK OUT, POND!”

“Do you think, it’ll qualify for an exchange offer.”


The photo prompt has been given by Dale Rogerson at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The word prompt (Exchange) has been given for Six Sentence Stories at the Girlie on the Edge.

    Of course the stop sign’s color and shape are universal. 😉 Cute.
