Berry Tester

Good morning, friends. This Friday brings us another 100 word tale inspired by the photo prompt from Madison Woods.

If you’ll notice, the header at the top of the page and my URL have changed. This is because I’ve decided to kick my pen name to the curb. It was time for Brandon to go. I used the name one final time in the list of links so you’d know who I was. From here on out I’ll be using Adam Ickes.

Also, if you haven’t been following the Tales of the Traveler, you really should. *wink wink nudge nudge*

Berry Tester

“My old man says they’re poisonous.”

“Your old man is full of it.”

“No he isn’t.”

“Why don’t we have Abby test them?”

“No way! My mom will kill me if I poison Abby.”

“Well I’m not doing it.”

“Me neither.”


“Summer camp all week.”


“At the beach.”

“What about Chuck?”

“That could work.”

“Just pick a couple.”

“What do we say when he asks what they are?”

“Tell him they’re raspberries.”

“Good thinking.”

“Wait. What if he dies?”

“He won’t. He’ll probably just barf.”

“But what if he does?”

“Well, then I guess I get his bike.”

If you haven’t done so already, check out the stories written by the other Friday Fictioneers- use the link below for a list.
