100-Word Fiction: ‘Round the Table’

The men had gathered round a table so shiny that, had they wanted to see themselves, they would need only to have looked at its polished surface. But they didn’t. Instead they looked at each other warily. One frowned. Another blushed. Another grinned.

We are not here to judge, said one: We are here to consider possibilities and facts. The possibilities and facts are of prime importance. What are the possibilities? Where are the facts? First, we shall discuss the possibilities, which we shall find endless. Facts are considered more problematic – and should remain out of reach of us all.
