Twittering Tales #147, Catfishin’

Kat Myrman at Mercury Colliding has provided another interesting photo prompt for a very short story of no more than 280 characters.  Here’s my take this week and you can read all the entries and/or join in by visiting Kat’s site.

 

This is where you decided to meet?

Yeah, she said a public beach.

It’s so crowded. How you gonna find her?

Said she’d wear a black bikini. Why’s that funny?

Dude, there’s like 1,000 girls! Just text her.

Crap, no bars. You think she set me up?

Jeez, ya think?

Twittering Tales #146, The Gift…

Kat Myrman at Mercury Colliding has provided another interesting photo prompt for a very short story of no more than 280 characters.  My first impression of this picture was that it reminded me of marionettes.  So here’s my entry this week and you can read all the entries and/or join in by visiting Kat’s site.

Papa, it’s wonderful!

Well, it’s not everyday that a prince turns 10, now is it?

May I make the puppets move?

Puppets? Oh, no, son, they’re not toys. They’re tiny subjects I had created just for you.  Now, be gentle —

I’m making this one fly!

Wilhelm, no — his arm!

My heart pounds as I draw a breath.

Yes, Ms. Gray? Something to add?

No, sir, I think my papers are all there.

So it seems. The guard will take you back. The Parole Board will rule next month.

No, please!  They said today!

Will you…

Will you take the time to know me
Beyond the secret of my curves
I’ll return the favor
And explore your attributes…

Will you celebrate life’s wonders
Let me see it in your eyes
That you couldn’t live without me
You’d never want to try…

Will you stay with me forever
Or as long as time allows
You see, I can’t release you
I’m afraid I don’t know how…
