This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:
A dark story, perhaps appropriate for the times...
To most, he was just another face in the crowd until he disappeared one night. After that, his name was spoken everywhere, but only in the hushed tones of frightened people who were now his followers, followers of a man most had never seen and never would. There was no explanation coming from the government, and none brave enough to ask, but those in power were unwilling to risk that someone might. They ordered the electronic commands issued that would traverse every network, invade every system, remove any connection to those who knew him, and delete every record of his existence. Slowly, the man who was just another face in the crowd became the man without a face at all.
This comment came in via Twitter - not sure why the comments weren't working at the time, so I'll post it here:
@WOKRSmith For some reason I can't comment on your blog. But, I wanted to say how spectacular your FSF is this week! Love it!
