Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up based on a photo prompt. The Challenge – write a one hundred word story inspired by the picture that has a beginning, middle, and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.) The Key – make every word count. Up to the challenge? Join in!
James and Sarah stared out over the water, the only noise the pigeons’ coo. Content in the company, Sarah eventually broke the silence.
“You know,” she said. “I swam to that island once.”
“I was sitting here minding my own business and this rabid pigeon comes at me for my sandwich. I had no choice but to dive in the lake and swim for my life.”
James smiled, shook his head, and turned to Sarah.
“You might actually have,” he said.
“Nope. But I would.”
“I have no doubt.” They kissed, held hands, and watched the water some more.
100 words. Fiction. Feedback is always appreciated. Comments of any kind really — so long as they are related to the post.
