A bright future #FridayFictioneers

Excited to explore a new city, I set out with my backpack. Thats when I saw them, a sea of people forming a queue, which seemed like a never ending one. They braved the rains, the chill around.

Is this the famous annual sale of a high flying brand?

I tapped the shoulder of a man . He turned around and smiled “This is for admissions to kindergarten, its the most prestigious school in our canton, once our kids get in here, they are sure to have a bright future.”

I looked at the scrawly 3 year old beside whose eyes were glued to the i-pad. Indeed a bright future!

Linking up with the amazing Rochelle Wisoff who hosts a weekly flash fiction for writers. Thanks © Na’ama Yehuda for the photo prompt.

  1. It pains me no end when I see small kids glued to the screens. Such a waste of precious energy. They could be doodling or reading or just watching the world go by instead.

    And school admissions, well, let’s not even get there! 😉

    Wonderful take on the prompts, Aks.

  2. It all depends. Is she playing Candy Crush or reading Shakespeare? Screens are like the Force. They have a light side and a dark side. They could be used for education or mindless, mind-numbing entertainment or worse babysitting.

    I see where you’re going with this, and it’s well done. We all spend far too much time glued to screens. I’m just playing Devil’s Advocate.
