This IS an extremely FUN writing challenge to take part in, and Alastair’s wonderful photos make it even easier to think up a nifty story. Go on …what are you waiting for, give it a try!
“Look at the clouds forming exactly over the top of that building!” The girl stopped, pointing to the swirling multicolored clouds. ” They look a little sinister, don’t you think?”
“I don’t know about the sinister part, but the clouds do seem to be hanging out there, don’t they?” He hadn’t really noticed the clouds before, but now found himself looking up staring intently at them. He looked closer.
“Hey,” he said. ‘Remember that silly movie “Ghost Busters’. Towards the end, all the clouds gather over this one building because the forces of evil are getting ready to enter this realm of Earth.”
They both stared a little longer at the forming clouds and burst out laughing at their overactive imaginations. Walking away laughing, they didn’t hear the corresponding echoing laughter coming down from the clouds – the ominous clouds that continued to gather over the building!
Yes, I know this is my second posting for the day (and I said I wasn’t going to do that any more – so sue me!) Actually when I saw his photo, I couldn’t help myself, I wrote the story and then wanted to share with you peeps (I love the way RoSy says that! lol) Hope you enjoyed, I’m going back to my writing project now! Don’t forget to check out Alastairs new blog.

You really must do a sequel here Penny. 🙂
I’ll get right on it! 🙂
Hokey though it was, I enjoyed ‘Ghost Busters’.
Echoing clouds… Could also be prankster angels…
I liked it too, it was very very funny! Prankster angels, an excellent thought! 🙂
Really well-written. And only 150 words, -that’s amazing:)
Thank you Mitzie, just a little fun my friend! 🙂
Very good! I’ve always thought that clouds are reflections of my mood even though it’s a bit like the chicken and the egg. Did grey skies come first or was it my somber mood? lol Maybe I should deal with my god-complex to start. Keep up the good work. CIao!
Thank you. A little ‘light fiction. I’ve often wondered the same question. You have a god-complex? Most interesting!
Good job, Penny. You must continue… 🙂
Hi Sharla, Thanks, I’ll have to think on it a bit, not my usual cup of tea! )
Is there a sequel to this story..?. now you have my interests tweaked…
I’ll have to think on one bulldog. I’m sure evil will be involved! 🙂
LOL – You are one of my top peeps!
Oooooh – I like, I like & wondering what comes next. What are those clouds up to? They sound like a bunch of mischievous children.
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
Yeah, that’s the ticket. The bad guy’s kids have shown up to continue on in their old man’s footsteps of doing bad and evil things! 🙂 xo
Oooh, what happens next? What happens next?
I don’t know, I think perhaps some of the evil doer’s children have returned to play with the humans for awhile! 🙂
I love this story. I like the laughter from the clouds.
It was fun Alastair! 🙂
I love the variations with it.
I’m hoping it picks up soon though.
It will Alastair, there are slow days and busy days in all things!
