Don’t be mad at me, Rochelle! I was drawing a blank on what to do with this picture and then I saw in my ever-expanding draft files, the WWP for “tether”. Suddenly I had a story. So, merging two prompts is what I done did. That means you only have 80 words to read. Well, that and the blah blah I am doing as an intro 😉 I’m forgiven, right? Please? Thanks go to Roger Bultot for the use of his photo – wonder if he will ever play FF with us again? Should YOU feel like playing, just click on the frog below and add your fabulous 100 word story (don’t use me as a guide, you can use twenty more words!) and add your link!
No Need to Go Out
The doorbell rang and she looked through the peephole. “Yes, who is it?”
“Package for you, Ma’am. Need you to sign.”
“Just leave it at the door, please.”
“NO! Leave it. Just mark it delivered to Dot Parker. All the others do it.”
“Fine.” As he walked away, she heard him mutter “Stupid nutter.”
They say I’m tethered to my home. No, I’m not. I just don’t need to go out there.
At least that’s what she told herself.
Good Saturday, my peeps! My second foray into the world of Pegman. Woot! I am on a roll! 🙂
This week Pegman visits Bristol in the southwest of England. This week’s location was suggested by the talented and inspiring Kelvin M. Knight, blogger and flash fiction ninja. If you haven’t already, wander over and check out his blog. And thanks to Karen Rawson for hosting this fun challenge.
Your mission is to write a 150-word story, poem, or essay inspired by this week’s location. You’ll find both photo spheres and streetview to inspire you. Once your piece is polished, please share it with other Pegman contributors using the link up below.
One Step at a Time
From her fourth-story balcony, Melanie watched the activity below. The bar/restaurant/hostel was really picking up business and she was so happy for the owners. They worked so hard to get this thing going. That mural sure made the courtyard look lovely and definitely benefited her as well. Music spilled from the doors of the club in the evenings and rather than bother her, kept her good company, prompting uninhibited dancing around the living room to the beats pulsing up and through the open windows.
She loved the quirkiness of the added mushroom and caterpillar bench – very Alice in Wonderland. Apparently, the rooms inside the hostel were decorated in different styles. How cool would that be to experience? Thanks to Google, she could do so virtually. Still, would be nicer to see it live rather than through the computer.
Tomorrow. Tomorrow would be the day she stepped all the way outside.
