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.”
