Trifextra: Week Eighty-Six




this weekend's prompt---This weekend's Trifextra comes to us courtesy of MOV, who often emails us with suggestions for site improvement or potential prompts.  Most recently, she told us about Travel and Leisure magazine's "Super Short Travel Stories" competition, thinking that we could recreate the same challenge on our site.  We love the idea, but borrowing it outright feels a bit shady, so we're going to add our own twist to it.  This weekend, we want you to give us a 33-word time travel story.  We don't usually tell you what to title your piece, but we'd love it if you could title it with the year/date that you choose. - See more at: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.JfmXSmpp.dpuf

"Why was the Police here, Grandad?  What did they want? What was they looking for?"

"Someone told them we had books, boy.  They came looking for my Gramma's books."

"Books?  What's books, Grandad?"

  7. The horror... The horror! (And what's even eerier is the date you chose -- not some unforeseen occasion 1000 years from now, but a year that we, ourselves, could reach.)

    Brilliant stuff -- congrats on first place! :)
