This story is a response to the Challenge posted on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. A story inspired by the photo prompt, a beginning, middle and end in just 100 words or below, making every word count. Here goes my attempt, hope you guys like it.
My favorite hat designs are from Philip Treacy.
“Phil never saw the outer world. He had been employed with Schaefer Hat Works from age 6. It was his 12th birthday but no one knew. In that basement workshop where they worked, slept, cooked and even died, neither cared for birthdays. Dave remembered his mom…faintly. She sold him to the owner in lieu of a debt.She had no choice. They had shifted three times, but he knew the name of his village. He wanted to find her and make her life easy.”
“How do you know Phil ma’am?”
“Well you’re waiting for his interview here.”
