Flash Fiction: Fields of Copper

January 4, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about Copper Country. It can be any place, fictional, historical, or on another planet. Go where the copper leads.

Fields of Copper

In the early morning, when my family is sleeping, that is when I watch the sun rise over dancing wheat and I hold my breath to listen for music. Leaving the urban jungle for the countryside was the best thing I could have ever done.

I once spent my nights disassembling copper pipes for profit, now I spend my mornings gazing upon the fields of copper. I know that one day the truth will catch up with me because no one can stay in hiding forever. But until then, I will watch as the sun rises over Copper Country. (99 words)

  1. What a spectacular picture of that field of copper. And great depiction of her ‘progress’ in life through two different usages of copper. I’m sure those gold ingots she robbed from Fort Knox are buried under this very field 🙂
