Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
Today’s very busy photo prompt by Jean L. Hays gives us a million options to write about.
I went for the obvious one.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture, below.
Click here to hear me read my 1-minute story:
That was the last place I ever saw her.
Two kids, pretending we were in love, living the American Dream.
Driving across the USA, laughing, fighting, making up, almost every day.
Then that last argument.
She thought she won it.
I wanted to visit Grand Canyon, she said stick to the route.
So we followed the song.
I guess I was sulking.
She was making herself pretty, said she was going to have some fun.
They came out of nowhere, started ripping her clothes.
I heard her screams as they kicked me into blessed unconsciousness.
Never heard of her since.
