AnElephantCant always write fiction
About a candlestickmaker a baker or a butcher
But there is no looking back
Today he writes fact
Although his tale is set a few months in the future
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Presented weekly by Rochelle, gracious hostess to the creators of excellent stories.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
19th September 2014
Another dreich morning somewhere in the Trossachs.
But that soft drizzle is the reason why the countryside is so green, the glens so verdant.
And the reason for the great lochs, like Loch Katrine which supplies Glasgow with its water.
And, not far away, the world-famous bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
But this morning is different from any other morning in living memory.
The air is electric with a sense of promise.
Even the children leap from bed in anticipation of a new beginning.
Because today, for the first time in over 300 years, Scotland is again an independent country.
