Hysteria

by Miles H. Rost

Pastor Tom was always a bit odd, but people didn’t know what to think when they say a pontoon in the front of the church.

“Oh, it’s just there until I go fishing this weekend.”

For the entire week, the pontoon was the talk of the small town. Some called it sacrilege of the church, some called it economical.

The town manager wanted it gone.

“It’ll be gone by Sunday night, ma’am,” Pastor Tom said, smiling.

Sunday morning, nearly the whole town showed up for service. Pastor Tom walked out and smiled broadly.

“You will all be fishers of men…”

Friday Fictioneers – (The) Mission Bell

The Mission Bell

by Miles H. Rost

“You finished the dishes, Harlan?”

“Yeah.”

Harlan didn’t say too much. He knew that when the bell rang, he’d have to be off to work. He didn’t want to leave many words behind.

“I baked a cherry pie. Want a piece?”

“Thanks, Caiera, but no.”

Caiera knew that Harlan didn’t want to say much. She tried to make him as comfortable as he could, before that bell sounded.

With long silence between them, it was cut by the church bell’s chime.

Harlan picked up his rifle bag, and went to the door where Caiera snuck a kiss.

A sniper’s life.
