Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly challenge presented by my old friend Al Forbes.
The idea is to write a short story (200 word max) inspired by what you see in his picture (below).

Below is an example of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
I built it years ago.
Although it has not been fully tested, I know it works.
She made me promise never to use it.
I loved her more than anything, much more than my fantastic ambitions.
So, although it was my life’s work, and dream, I did as she asked.
But now she is gone, I am going to try it out.
You see, I have a plan.
My beautiful lady, my reason for living, was taken from me by an arrogant idiot.
An idiot who decided he could drive his high powered car after a night out with his moronic chums.
I don’t need to spell it out, do I?
Because his family is obscenely wealthy, with the connections that buys, he got a suspended sentence.
While I have a suspended life.
And my darling is dead.
But my task is simple.
The inquest heard all his movements for that dreadful night.
So I just set the coordinates and meet him in the car park at the Waterfront.
Then I can shoot him.
Or maybe I will strangle him.
But I have a problem.
How can I tell her I broke my promise?
