All Rung Up #flashfiction #noir #newcago


 

rescuers

I was through the guarded door.

I realized it was more like a portal to…

The bleeding woman was gone.

Curious, the place seemed somewhat familiar.

I was precariously perched on a ladder with no top and no bottom – just endless rungs.

I could taste the sepia colored air – thick and dank like fires were always ablaze.

From somewhere and nowhere, I heard a bloodcurdling scream.

The scream reverberated in the ladder’s metal.

I knew this was not Newcago.

Tho it seems wherever I go there is mayhem.

For a moment I looked down, considering.

“Climb I must,” I smirked.

NewCago is a noir, metropolitan area that is plagued with a string of perhaps para normal bad guys. Sam (a private detective) seems to be the only one who can stay alive long enough to protect the citizens. How long can his luck last???

Follow Sam as he leaves Newcago and enters another world.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. Good continuation from last week–particularly like the sensory image invoked by “The scream reverberated in the ladder’s metal.” Story is progressing nicely.

    1. Have you ever thought about inliudcng a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But just imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, pop ! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Excellent blog!

    1. A worthy reeviw. “Summertime” is a brilliant book by a brilliant author. It is also (thank heavens!) a somewhat lighthearted and funny book by a generally morose writer. Though there have been signs aplenty in “Diary of a Bad Year” of the light touch. I am glad that getting the Nobel has freed him to do these kinds of novels in addition to all the great works of his pre-Nobel era.

  2. Leo, I haven’t been doing haikus or seuyrns, but I have borrowed a couple of your prompts. I’m not linking to the daily prompts, since I don’t want to violate your rules, but I do invite all of your to come read; you can get there by clicking on my name above this comment. Feedback is welcome, as always. Thanks.
