Friday Fictioneers – In Plain Sight

Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz (Join the Party!) on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

“Thanks, Jacko,” came the voice in his concealed earpiece. “Male, Caucasian, heading towards the tower?”

“Yo!” He clicked his fingers, shuffled a dance step; faded into the background as he helped keep NYC safe.
