Call Rick

“I need you to call Rick!!!”
“Ethel, what’s wrong?”
“My car broke, I’m on the expressway.”
“Oh no!” How are you calling me?”
“A man stopped and I’m using his phone. We put the hood up but can’t see anything wrong, that’s why I need Rick.”
“Of course you can’t, I’m surprised you got the hood up.”
“The man did it.”
“I told you not to drive on the expressways, now look where you are.”
“I know where I am, Smarty, on the Kennedy at Damen, now call Rick and have him come save me.”
“Okay, stay where you are.”

Always fun to see one of my photos used for the prompt at FridayFictioneers. Be sure to check out all the stories prompted by this old Chevy, which was left derelict in the woods many years ago near my daughter’s house on San Juan Island. My story was #79.ย You can find all the other stories here.

  4. Thanks for the great picture, Ted. It really sparked some great imagination.
    And I love this… Poor Ethel…

  5. I wonder if the man regrets ever having stopped in the first place to help out..

  6. Oh I hope he gets there soon. Lot of drama in this. Love the urgency

  7. Great dialogue as others have said. Let’s hope Rick gets there quickly and that the man with the phone has only good intentions! Great photo, Ted
