The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Until Further Notice
Kate hadn’t seen another scavenger hunter in more than an hour. She looked at the clue once more: Four on the floor, stillness amidst the flow of time.
Turning towards the sound of running water, Kate eventually exited the woods, coming to the creek. I only need the last item! She flipped an imaginary coin, turning upstream, soon spotting the chair. She trotted into the water, hoping she was first. She found a note taped underneath the seat.
“Until further notice, celebrate everything.”
Smiling, Kate returned the note to its envelope, deciding to share the sentiment with those who followed.
