Friday Fictioneers 100 Word Story Challenge: DS Squared Et Cetera

FF Prompt 6 February 2015 Garden Maze by Melanie GreenwoodComing in very late with this entry (got stuck in a wormhole, but worth it as I’m now younger than I was last week) for Friday Fictioneers 100 word flash fiction challenge.

For those who don’t know, every Friday writers worldwide gather round the virtual fireside of Rochelle Wisoff and share stories of 100 words, prompted by a common photograph, and exchange constructive criticism. You don’t have to write to read. Click on the blue frog at the end of my story to access all the other stories written to this week’s prompt. Readers’ comments are welcome.

This week’s photo prompt is courtesy Melanie Greenwood. Thanks Melanie. Here’s the story your photo inspired:

DS Squared Et Cetera

“Lovely approach to her tomb.”
“The pathways are dead ends.”
She looked. “Meaning?”
“Legend says the maze symbolised the unbridgeable divide between the living and the dead.”
“Why have you brought me here?”
“Flamm was an alchemist. What looks like a maze was part of his search for the Philosopher’s Stone.”
“Dissolve the divide, reach his beloved.”
“He succeeded.”
She laughed.
“He discovered the Einstein-Rosen Bridge 700 years before Einstein and Rosen. This is a wormhole.”
“So this hedging conceals an Event Horizon?”
“Will you marry me; honeymoon in a parallel universe, never return?”
“Ds-squared et cetera …”

  1. Dear Ann,

    That was certainly a unique take on the prompt. I loved the mathematical proposal. Sweet and different.

      Thanks Rochelle. I have to applaud you for all your work here – getting through all the submissions every week must be exhausting. You’ll have to start
      delegating if the list gets much longer!


  2. Sandra says:

    Your submissions are guaranteed to be completely different. I stand in awe! 🙂

  3. Worm hole cubed, I thought. Double pi plus points. Nobel effort.
