Time for the delightful writing challenge of Alastairs Photo Fiction, Alastair shares with us one of his photographs to use as a prompt for writing a flash fiction (short-short) story of no more than 150 words. Writing from a photo prompt is fun, give this one a try! Click on his link for more details.
His photograph this week is the following:
Stepping Into The Future
“A picture of a time portal?” She shook her head handing the photo back to him. “I was expecting something – I don’t know – more exciting, a dark luminous tunnel, a pathway ending in a mist.”
He smiled, “I know, completely average looking. But this is it. The portal, between the first and second set of steps. By the time you reach the second set you’re in the future, when you turn and walk back down you’re in the past again.”
“Fascinating, but how do I know you’re not just making this up.”
His smile became broader. “I anticipated your question. So I took this picture before I came. Notice the date in the lower right hand corner.”
She looked at the date in the photograph and then at him.
“You’re from my future?”
“Yes,” he said, “But I couldn’t wait any longer to be with you,
so I came early!”
