“Wise Choice” 100 word Story


After taking a soda on a five-finger discount, Alicia departed the small grocery store to find the city frozen in mid-walk, mid-conversation, and even traffic remained immobile.

Terrified, she retreated backwards into the store finding the customers and employees also unmoving.

Behind the counter an elderly Greek man, also motionless, with a scowling expression, stared at the empty place where Alicia removed the soda she still held.
