Friday Fictioneer: Don’t Seem Right

PHOTO PROMPT © Ted Strutz

“Impatiens, that is an airplane.”

“Oh, Grandpa.”

“My granddad rode a horse across America.”

“That would take years.”

“Months, not years. He saw the plains, prairies, mountains, and all kinds of wild life.”

“I promised Mom we’d be home by dinner.”

“Breakfast by the Mississippi River. Dinner by the Pacific Ocean. Don’t seen right.”

“But it’s efficient.”

“Granddad lived off the land. Camped under the stars.”

Aaron linked arms with his grandfather. “Come on, Grandpa, you can tell me all about it while we fly over the plains, prairies, mountains, and all kinds of wild life.”

“Don’t seem right.”
