As I was hanging on the endless ladder, I heard a sound
“Sam you have had some interesting things cross your path but a goat?”
Somehow it gave me the incentive to climb faster.
There it was like a shoebox diorama of a distant past: a woman reading a book, a kid trotting about an untended grave site, peaceful death.
In angst I sighed. “The people in NewCago have sacrificed so much for the sake of power and a few coin.”
There was no longer peace in Newcago streets even death was noisy as the ghostly victims could tell you.
Thanks to Rochelle our Fictioneer extraordinaire for the weekly prompts and for Randy Maize and the photo prompt for this week.
This is my final Newcago episode for Friday Fictioneers. I have decided to create a weekly series that will pull some of the elements from these stories and expand on them.

Drat! Seb stole my comment!
Oh dear, Newcago can’t survive without Sam. Are we to assume the noisy death refers to the obliteration of the city?
Newcago needs Sam that is for sure. I am just writing the beginning of the NewCago series which will allow for more detail. Some of the flash fiction will be an impetus for the ongoing serial

Leslie you did a great job with this. I can see it as a stand alone piece of fiction.
