I’ll get by. . .

with a little help from my friends.

Here’s a quick 100-word story I wrote to a prompt from our prompt guru Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for Friday Fictioneers.

“You gonna reopen, Nate?”

“Nope. I’ve had enough.”

One by one we surveyed the damage and sat to commiserate. Then Pete came in and found a broom. We watched in silence as he swept mud and seaweed across the floor. He had trouble with one big pile so Janetta dug up a garden rake and helped him push that mess out and down toward the beach. Georgie swished Nate’s mop around, Mayor Greensom started scrubbing counters, Martha and I straightened up outside and Singh went to find industrial cleaner for the grill.

Nate was open for business in three days.

Back in business!
