#100WW — Dominoes


I wouldn’t say they were looking for trouble, but the teenagers were clearly up to no good.

One of the boys noticed bicycles lined up on a side street at one of the cycle-sharing stands that dotted the city. He ran toward the bikes, the others following.

“Geronimo,” he yelled and let loose a hard, swift kick to the end bike, which sent the other bikes careening into each other, like falling dominoes.

The four ran from the scene, sure no one had seen them. They hadn’t noticed the surveillance camera mounted on the light pole near the bicycles.

    Oh I love it! Excellent take on the image prompt this week 🙂 It’s difficult, at times, to see the ramifications of your actions. Long term consequences seem, quite literally, inconsequential. You’re young, you’ll live forever, you’ll worry about it later (or was that just me as a young person?!?). Getting caught in the act isn’t as fun as the act itself seems to be in the fleeting memories of young. Thank you for joining us this week — I look forward to reading more 🙂

      These days, with all of the surveillance cameras around, it’s hard to get away with much, no matter what your age. I’m glad you liked my take. Thanks for the prompt.

    Somethings are just too tempting aren’t they….though they might do it again I am thinking.
