Flash Fiction: Blocks

Confetti littered the street, banners announced the arrival of the new shopping center on wheels. Jobs were the citizens first thoughts when they heard about the new company that would be setting up mobile shop around town. Little did they realize that blocks would be taken over for the endeavors. It was easy to say that jobs would be created but the poverty that followed was not what they had envisioned at all.

Has the celebration been cut short? Are the citizens worse off now than they were before the arrival of the new business?

The word is blocks and this post comes in at 73 of the 150 word limit set by M3 for the next edition of the Flash in the Pan series. Are you flashing yet?
