Alastair’s Photo Fiction. I’ve decided to take part in a new weekly writing challenge. In this challenge the goal is to write a flash fiction (short-short) story using 150 words or less (approximately – those who go over the 150 count will have all their personal belongings confiscated and will pay a fine of $5,000 – okay not really but it sounds kind of cool doesn’t it? Talk about money making ideas! lol). Seriously, the prompt each week will be from a photograph provided by Alastair. This weeks photo prompt below.
A conversation going nowhere!
“So, what’s in the glass?”
“Nothing much, why do you ask?”
“Because I’m curious as to what it is?”
“You mean the swirly stuff?”
“Yes I mean the swirly stuff, what is it?”
“Well, what would you like it to be?”
“…What kind of an answer is that?”
“My answer! What would you like it to be?”
“Oh this is ridiculous, WHAT’S IN THE GLASS?”
“Well, it’s magic, think about what you want, hold the glass in your hand, drink it and the wish is granted!”
“Oh, too cool, I know what I want, give me the glass.”
“I’ve already made my wish. Why do you always get to do everything first?”
“Because I just do. Give me the glass.”
“Well alright, here you go.”
Sound of someone drinking, then sounds of someone choking and gasping final breaths.
“What’s happening to me?”
“Sorry! I said I made my wish first!”
