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 the picture (below).
This week Al shows us a photo by J Hardy Carroll

There is no reading this week, my limited oratory skills do not stretch to a conversation.
Bottle of Water
Do you want some water?
I am just talking to someone.
I am getting water. Do you want a bottle?
I am just talking to this guy.
Do you want water? (Two bottles of Highland Spring, please.)
What is it? I couldn’t hear you for the traffic. I was just talking to that guy.
I just asked if you wanted water. Here.
There was no need to get so excited, we were just talking.
You don’t need to be so jealous!
Jealous? I just asked…
That’s him there. Look, he is living in a cardboard box, and you get all uppity.
How you doing, man? Here, you look dry, have some water.
I don’t think it’s water he wants.
It will do him more good than anything else.
He still thinks you’re crazy, you know.
For being so possessive.
I. Only. Asked. If. You. Wanted. Water.
Calm down, no need to get all uptight.
Do you ever listen to yourself?
I don’t need to. I have to listen to you!
