A Modern Speakeasy

A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.

The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

My buddy said look for the AR sign with the big fish, so I guess this is it. With the new restrictions on commercial fishing in place, it makes sense the modern speakeasy is all about seafood. I haven’t had real lobster or scallops in years. But Jake said he knew a place. Not sure why they’d use this freaky creature, not like it’s good to eat. But hey, whatever floats their boat I guess.

Now, what was the password today? Oh yeah, goldfish. Ah, now I get the sign.
