Friday Fictioneers – Country Boy

(Author’s note: Still in the process of finding a job, but I am getting a bunch of looks. Hope to have something soon, even if it’s temporary. Gotta make money to spend money. Here’s tonight’s fictioneers!)

Country Boy

by Miles H. Rost

“Get me outta here.”

Carl Baker wanted to go home. He wanted to be with his horses, apricot orchard, and all the things he loved.

His wife wanted to see the Big City. Rockefeller Center was the bullseye for the trip.

“Dang, honey. That building’s big.”

“It’s said that the family built it, then they sold it off.”

“Well, they kinda had to. After all, it was my family that cut them off in the depression.”

His wife looked at him strangely.

“Your family knew the Rockefellers?”

“We owned the bank. The Rockefellers were city slickers. Can we go now?”

  1. I suppose if I had a “bucket list,” visiting NYC would be on it. After all, it is one of the most iconic cities in the world. On the other hand, I do hate crowds.

  2. Great story, Miles. Not sure I should thank you for that country song. It’s the sort of song that gets into your head and you can’t get it out.
    Good luck with the job searching. Hope you find something soon.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena
