I am happy to have this week’s Tuesdaytales Judgemasters take over:
Jeffery HollarPoet, father, husband and Klingon/Ferengi hybrid mix. Voracious reader (been at it for 45 years) and writer of paranormal satire.
WINNER“The post-apocalyptic quality of this story was truly disturbing and chilling. My Ferengi side has to give props to anybody who trades kids for eyeglasses. Creepy and sad tale.”Ruler of #MenageMonday flashfiction challenge& Now FIVE time winner of #tuesdaytales
The beauty of the world could be distinguished through the aged specs. The clear plastic frames looked like late 70s Bill Gates, but through them the blur of the world exploded in crisp, perfect lines and colors I hadn’t seen since the wars. A flowered field stretched out before me in endless clarity.
Bitter tears stung.
I looked carefully to the scavenger next to me, not daring to let hope show.
“How much?” I asked casually.
“The little one.”
I looked to my youngest and memorized her face as I’d never seen it.
“Deal,” I said.
“Pleasure doing business, ma’am.”
HONORABLE MENTIONS!@LupusAnthropos – This one gave me a good laugh over the slight misunderstanding in what the boss wanted. Hate it when that happens, eh?@rrkovar – This had a really spooky dystopian feel that drew me back to it for several reads.@PurpleQueenNL Miranda Kate – This was another surreal piece and I liked the seemingly-magical properties of the glasses.Everyone spread the word of the HMS: @PurpleQueenNL , @rrkovar , @LupusAnthropos the winner @caramichaels and @klingorengi for the awesome judgemastery!
