This is my response to the Friday Fictioneers prompt for August 8. The challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo prompt. Play along by writing your own, reading others and/or commenting on the flashes we fictioneers create. My piece this week weighs in at 98 words.
On Election Day, Christine left work early to give herself time to find the new polling location. Traffic moved slower than usual, but finally her GPS announced, “Your destination is on the left.”
Christine saw nothing but rocks and trees.
“Make next legal U-turn.”
Christine turned her car around.
“Your destination is on the right.”
Three U-turns later, Christine noticed the dilapidated building set a quarter mile off the road.
As she climbed three flights of steps to the correct room, Christine realized she had neglected to renew her driver’s license last November. Would the election officer notice?
