Storming the Gate – a 100 word story

Storming the Gate
by M.T. Decker

“Pete, I know it looks imposing, but I’m telling you we can sneak in…”

Peter gave Pablo a dubious look and shook his head.  “I don’t think we can sneak in, and if you ask me, we shouldn’t.  It looks like a fortress because it is a fortress: a mighty fortress.”

Much to Peter’s chagrin, Pablo wasn’t giving up.

“We could climb the tree next to it and use that to get on the roof, then it’s just a question of shimmying up the drain pipe…”

Peter sighed.  “Do you really think that’s the best way to get into heaven?”

  1. Dear M. T.,

    Why on earth would anyone try to sneak into heaven? That mystery aside, I loved your story and extend to you a hearty, ‘Welcome to the party, Pal!’ from all of us here at FF.



  2. Dear MT,

    Perhaps they should try a more direct route. This sounds a bit dicey to me.

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. I’ll warn you that it’s addictive. As with Hotel California, you may check out anytime but you can never leave.



  3. Good luck to them! Nice story~

    Last I checked, death was the most direct route. Assuming one believes in that sort of thing that is. Shimmying up the drain pipe sounds like a lot of work. Nice story.

    I wasn’t expecting that. Great story.

    Maybe shimmying up a drainpipe isn’t such a bad alternative to always having to be good. 🙂

  7. Sandra says:

    For some that might be the only way to get into heaven… 🙂 Nice one.

  8. If you can find a way in you can surely find a way out. I like the innovation.
    Welcome to the club 🙂

  9. I was wondering where you were going with this poor wreck of a church, but you just went on to make me laugh. Thank you.

  10. Heaven is boring and way too much harping 🙂
