Progress

The announcement in the newspaper said to meet in the school if you wanted to help The Foundation raise money. A large group of students and community members met at the designated spot, by the old pay telephone. They had collected pledges of money from sponsors. The first three finishers in the race would donate to The Foundation.

When they finished the race, they were to meet back at the telephone and call a designated number.

Two hours later, John, Felicia, and Barb finished the race and dialed the phone. No one had remembered pay telephones didn’t work anymore.

  1. Well, if they at least had the number, and the other party intended to honor the agreement, they should still be okay. Just a hike back to the phone booth for nothing.
    Good one. This story might lend itself well to an all-dialogue version, too.
