I wasn’t sure I’d be able to sneak this Pegman in today, it being Easter and all. Plus, my son’s birthday yesterday and my niece’s birthday last Saturday means my part of the Easter dinner is two birthday cakes! One is freezing (key lime pie) and one is baking, so here I am… Thank you, always, to Karen and Josh for hosting this party.
This week Pegman takes us to Nigeria. Feel free to use the location chosen or chose from one of the many photo spheres available throughout the country of Nigeria. if you drift over to Lagos along the southwest shore, you’ll also be able to take a streetview.
The Pegman challenge is to write 150 words inspired by this week’s location. Will it be historical fiction? Fantasy? Contemporary? Or does the location bring out your poetry muse? It’s up to you. When your piece is polished, please share a link to it at the linkup below:
Divorce is a bitch. One of the parents has to leave the family nest and, depending on the ages of the children, they get schlepped from one house to another. In this case, it worked out. His kids were old enough at the time to decide where to stay. They chose their mom after he convinced them that she needed them more than he did. Besides, he could see them whenever he/they wanted. He was but a phonecall away.
Except he couldn’t be there to protect them.
When Mom got a new boyfriend, all seemed fine. Until this guy waited till she went for a shower, to sneak into the daughter’s room.
Luckily the daughter’s scream was enought to fend him off.
The boyfriend was forever banned.
That didn’t stop the rage of emotions from flowing over him at the thought of anyone touching his baby girl without her permission.
