100-Word Fiction: ‘A Conversation’

Old: We’ve never had any problems previously.

Young: Oh you’ve had problems?

Old: We’ve not done.

Young: You’ve not done anything?

Old: It’s not happened before.

Young: No, if that’s the case then something needs to be done.

Old: You want to do something?

Young: What could we do?

Old: If we are okay…

Young: You think you are okay?

Old: Are we not?

Young: No, we are not.

Old: Is this new?

Young: I don’t know. Has it happened before?

Old: I hadn’t noticed.

Young: But if you didn’t notice…

Old: I wouldn’t know.

Young: No you wouldn’t know.
