Time to gear up!

This is a story for Friday Fictioneers, which is hosted by Rochelle. Every week you are challenged to write a 100 word story based on a photo.

Thanks to Rochelle for  this week’s photo and also hosting the challenge.

Thanks to all the readers for their time, too.

We were surrounded by trees. We didn’t know they could burn. However, one day something fell from above and burnt a part of the forest. That day we got scared. That day, we ate cooked things for the first time.

We started making fire. The wheel was in motion. Soon came a day — of nothing.

A few of us… of our race survived. We geared up in search of a brand new place. We found a brand new planet. We settled.

“Time to gear up! Our ancestors found earth. We’ll have to find someplace else before here turns grey.
