Friday Fictioneers: Everyone’s a Comedian

My fiction skills are so rusty! I’ve been writing too much about the real world.

Good thing Friday Fictioneers is still a thing. Thanks, as always, to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting!

Everyone’s a Comedian
            “If these walls had ears,” Lee murmured as he pressed a palm to the ancient building’s wall.
            The young boy at his side stopped between the large man and the redhead on his other side. “What if they had ears?”
            “Well, they’d have some interesting stories to tell. This is an old part of town, Kage.”
            “Wouldn’t they need mouths then?” Di grinned at Lee’s face palm.
            A grin spread over Kage’s face. “Yeah, and eyes, ‘cause how would they know there was anyone there to talk to?”
            Lee sighed and started walking again. “I can’t take you two anywhere.”

  1. Dear Em,

    Engaging dialogue as Lee and Kage expound on the old adage, “if these walls could talk.”



  2. Thank you! 🙂

    I always need to repress the urge to start this conversation every time I hear that saying.

  3. Dear Rochelle,

    Thank you! I'd been lingering on some of the darker aspects of my personal past and that of the world in general, so I needed a little levity. 🙂

    Take care,

  4. Thank you! 🙂 I didn't portray it in this short, but she's his adoptive mom. They're all from a longer story I'm working on.
