All For a Game

This 100-word short story was written for Friday Fictioneers, over at Rochelle’s.

“Where the hell are you going Charlie,” asked Bert.

“To that tree over there, see it?”

“There are a lot of trees there Charlie, which one are you talking about?”

“The one with the big long leaves that look like spikes.”

“Oh, okay, that would be a palm tree.”

“Now what are you doing Charlie?”

“I’m going to climb up to that big huge branch to see if I can get a cell signal.”

“What’s so important that you have to climb a tree to make a call?”

“I’m not calling anyone, it’s gem box day on Clash of Clans.”
