Stacey closed her twitter app and opened facebook, she closed that to open tumblr.

She scrolled down to see if she missed something…

No, she had seen it all before.

Stacy threw the Ipad down on the bed in frustration, tears formed in her eyes that she couldn’t explain.

She had one last look and noticed an image she hadn’t  before,

“Who is HappySmilingPeople?”she wondered.

She clicked on the icon and was sucked into the screen.

When she opened her eyes she was flying over fields in a zeppelin somewhere.

She smiled with an exhilaration never known before.


100 or maybe 101 words of flash fiction brought to by the lovely Madison Wood‘s picture prompt for Friday Fictioneers this week:

Join them it’s fun. a nice break from WIP’S that might be frustrating you (okay me) right now. 🙂

    Love this idea of being sucked into the computer.

  2. Aha! I see where you are going with this! She is so lonely she wants to be totally inside the social network!
    However, I think you could make it better by dropping the stomach line and include something more about her needs being met, or the real feeling of sheer happiness she would experience becoming part of the something she had so longed for.
    P.S. – There is no shame is doing rewrites even after you have posted your story. I do it all the time!

    Thanks Lindaura-I didn’t really like how I ended it myself but I got a little stuck with showing what I wanted to and how to do that. I like that idea though-and I think rewrites can be a very good thing.:)

  4. Great! It makes a change – she is now feeling the exhilaration of being inside the blimp – but being free of all cares, i guess.

  5. It’s a really nice idea, being taken away into your computer and away, like a modern Peter Pan. lovely.

    Reminds me of TRON (the movie). I like how you used the social networking concept to reflect her loneliness.

    wonderful presentation.. very relevant to the current scenario, where ppl live in the virtual world, seeking for friendship, understanding, appreciation & whatever they are deprived off in real life in the social networking sites.
