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).
This week’s photo shows his romantic nature, a photo of rhinos in a field.
So St Valentine’s, Al, you big sop!

Whatever, is that what is in the picture?
Yes, those are rhinoceri in the photograph.
And is that what you are writing about?
Yes, that photo is what I am trying to write about.
Oh, are you finding it hard this week?
I wasn’t, until the interruptions.
What… Oh, you mean me?
Yes, dear, I mean you.
Oh sorry. Actually, no, I’m not.
You’re not? You enjoy ruining my creative process?
Well, you are so self-centred, aren’t you?
Did you read the poem I sent you last week?
Not yet, I had some technical problems, you know.
And you haven’t found two minutes to read something I wrote specially for you?
No, I have been trying to catch up on work after this thing kept crashing.
And all of that is more important than me?
I’ll read it as soon as I finish this, okay?
No, I don’t want you to, just delete it!
I’m not going to delete it, I’ll read it now.
I have changed my mind about what I wrote. Delete it or I’m leaving.
Don’t be silly, you are over-reacting.
Happy Valentine’s Day, idiot!
(The door slams.)
