Friday Fictioneers – June 8, 2012

caveat: thrown together quickly! (Friday Fictioneers prompt –

Against the Day

                   And what was there to do?

                   High school now behind us, Frank’s dad dead, and no promise of college, work, or love; we were lost, angry, confused.

                   We’d all of us read Pynchon, we knew very well what to expect, and it wasn’t good.

                    And lots of it.

                  So much burned inside us.

                   At the city’s River Festival we spotted the blimp.

                   And somehow we knew.

                   We just knew.

                   Now, it begins.
