55 - Fountain People

They called themselves the fountain people, although what this signified the young man didn't know. Perhaps they were a race of water-worshippers, beholden to a deity that caused rivers to flow forth from crusty rock. Whatever their origin, to the ambitious archeologist of 7012 they were a rare find. Their story would make his career.



















About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

We lose so much, even in 50 years. I wonder what "people" would be like that far in the future. I like the idea of Fountain people, though. Would love to be one.

Very clever. When my children play in water fountains, I must say, they do look like they are worshiping ;)
