Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by Jeff Arnold.
There is no reading this week. My voice is currently incapable of this dialogue.
Yes, darling, through here.
Come see what I’ve got.
What is… Oh, Terry, it’s beautiful!
It’s a 1968 Triumph Spitfire MK3. Happy Birthday, my love.
Oh thank you! Can we try it out, can we, can we?
Of course! I thought we’d go to Oban.
We’ll take the scenic route, up the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, through haunted Glencoe, then down Loch Linnhe with its views of the Inner Hebrides.
That sounds wonderful!
I thought you’d enjoy that.
Have we got time to nip upstairs first?
You want to pack an overnight bag?
Afterwards, sweetheart, afterwards!
