Yesterday, we gave thanks for all we had. But then we wanted more. Now the being before us demanded payment.
This is a special Black Friday Fiction Writing Prompt. Following Thanksgiving, the Black Friday tradition pulls the US, and many others around the world, into wanting and buying more. We give thanks and then seek out that little extra.
This got me thinking about something dark to relate to the black (yes, I know that the black refers to business bank account balances, but I am taking creative license here). Transactions are commonly financial. But what if this is no ordinary capitalist trade? What if the being isn’t even human? Has anyone been selling their soul recently? What did your character desire that they would make such an offer?
Of course, this is your writing, and perhaps you’re using a metaphor to describe the cashier. But why use the metaphor, what’s the motivation behind that?
As always, no rules, just write and have fun. And as you do take a look inside and think whether or not you really need that… and is it worth the payment being demanded… cue evil laugh!
