Friday Fictioneers – where the challenge is to write a complete story in 100 words or less. Inspired by a photo prompt posted every week. Beginning, Middle & End. Every word counts!
“No idea where we are. Let’s get into town and find a decent place to stay.”
Backpacking for over a month. Somehow we got turned around between the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. With all the refugees, the border guards didn’t seem to care.
We’re lost, a few Euro on us. Last night, the Inn was more like someone’s house. Sweet people who took us in. 20 Euro. Good food. Kind treatment. I didn’t understand a word.
We pass a sign. Border town. I’m relieved. Don’t let it show. Secretly we’re lost. I know you’ve seen worse. You’re never afraid.
