“Dad, I am scared! There is so much green.”
“Don’t worry son, I am with you. Just stick to the fenced path.”
“But those creepers are climbing on the path – there see-“
“Stick to the middle sonny. Just a few more Hematite for dinner and we are done.”
“Dad, how did it get so green?”
“It’s those earthlings; since they came, they have spread these greens all over our planet. Few red pyramids are all that’s red left in our red planet. If anything goes wrong – you know where to go. We can still see the red pyramid from here.”
100 word Flash Fiction written for Friday Fictioneers challenge dated 14 March 2014. It’s a weekly challenge organized by Rochelle Wisoff. This weeks challenge posed a difficulty in understanding the image. What looked like a red pyramid when the image is small came out to be the top of the canopy when seen in full size. But I decided to stick to the image that appeared to me on first look.
