Friday Fictioneers -Everything Has A Price

Every week Rochelle gives us an image donated by one of the participants and we use that image as a prompt to write a piece of fiction in around 100 words.

If you want to have a go, then click on the Friday Fictioneers image, and if you want to read what others have written, then click on the blue frog image.





“£37,000 for the car”

Not a chance. Beryl is not for sale at any price. She was a gift when I was a child, and I am 73 now. There is no way I am going to part with her.”

“Everything has a price, even you and that car.”

Haha! Is that what you tell yourself every night before you go to bed? That you can buy absolutely anything?”

“Okay, let’s try £37 million”

Nope. And brandishing that gun won’t work either


“Heh. My car now.”

Welcome Mr Stewart. Please use voice recognition to start the engine.

      • Yeah…I like that idea. Try and change the voice rec and the secret sugar package is dumped into the engine rendering the car useless. Or the engine could just blow up and destroy the car and maybe even hurt the person who was working on it as well as the guy watching the person working on it…. karma?

  1. Grr, what an evil person, shooting someone over a car! I wish I felt like the ending twist was just rewards, but anyone that rich will literally get away with murder, and find someone who can override the voice command too. He’ll only be temporarily delayed in getting what he wants. Maybe the car has a security system that videotaped the entire incident and sent it to the police? Or…the car has its own weapons system and shot the bad guy in “self defense”?

  2. Now that was a hoot! One should check all repercussions before making such decisions…
    Um… why didn’t you add your lovely picture?

  3. [ Laughs ] Brilliant, Al. I loved the part about the engine that only starts with voice recognition; which of course would be started by the voice of the authorized driver.
