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.
This week’s photo is by Ted Strutz, a regular supplier of interesting shots.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.
Click here to hear the writer read his words:
I guess I always knew I’d get caught.
What I did was pretty reckless.
Some might say foolhardy.
But nothing much ever happens around here.
I was bored, bored to distraction.
And she distracted me.
Then I had to flee.
Drove for days, hid out near the border.
I don’t know if I got spotted, or if it was the car.
I know what the punishment will be.
There is no way round that.
But I had to do it.
Any last words?
Nah. I’ve nothing to say.
Well, yes, obviously.
I got caught.
