FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER- 2017
The Taylor Project
“Ralph, is the Taylor project almost finished?” his supervisor asked.
“No! We have been working on it for a long time, but it seems like we are getting no where with it.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because the hole is not getting any deeper. “
“I know, but I have the depth checked every few days and it never seems to change.”
“Let me measure it and see what I come up with.”
“Sure, go ahead, but you will get the same answer I got.”
Jackson got to the site late in the afternoon after the crew had already left to go home. He stepped toward the hole and the ground shook, he heard a grumbling noise, the area felt cold and he was having trouble breathing. He thought he heard a strange voice warning him to go away and he rushed to get back to his car feeling weak and beads of sweat dripped from his head , his body shook, and he could barely get in his car. As he drove away he thought he saw a huge black mass of clouds hovering over the construction site.
“What did you find out when you checked the site yesterday?” Ralph asked.
“Nothing, but I’ve decided to close the project and have everyone work on the Monroe project.”
