The Lull before …

The Lull before …

“You are right, son. A man has to stand up for himself. But he does not attack from the shadows.”

Ruminating on those fatherly words, plans were made for his own Little Big Horn.

Attacks happened between classes… near his locker… inconveniently by the boy’s bathroom.

Carefully casing the hall, a plan was devised.

Just before the start of school. “Mr. Horn, could you stop by my locker just before lunch? I have created a new app in my entrepreneur class for I-phones. Love to show it to you.”

“Clarence. I’d love to see it.”

The stage was set…

Written for Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge: Requirements: September 23, 2015 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) declare an intention in a story. Is it one person, a character speaking up or speaking out? Is it a group or a nation? Create a tension before or after the declaration. It can be private or public, big or small. Does it have power to those who state it or hear? What does it change?
