Possibilities!

By Teresa Smeigh

Throwing the mirror at the wall all I could think about was how beautiful my sister was and how ugly I thought I was. She dated all the time and all the men seemed to love her. I sat home alone almost every night except for the nights I went to the church meetings. No one paid me much attention. I sat alone most days.

One day I was walking home alone, and Jonah stopped and asked me if I wanted a ride? I looked behind me as I didn’t think he was talking to me. After some mental debate I decided to get in the car.

We had the most wonderful conversation and spent hours talking over coffee and pie. This became our meeting night ritual.

One night he asked me to marry him. I was stunned! “Me? You want to marry me? What about my sister? You must want her surely. Everyone else does.”

We talked long into the night and he convinced me that he really wanted to marry me.

I never thought that was possible.

The Rules:

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 13th March and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

The Outing

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Meandering down the paths of the local park, Chris and Suzy held hands and talked about nothing in particular. She had tried finding out where they were going, but Chris wouldn’t tell her.

“I have found a great spot and I have a surprise for you,” he said.

They came out onto a clearing that had a large pond. The spot was beautiful. The birds and insects were chirping as they looked for a spot to sit.

“I know we have been in this park before, but I just found this lovely pond and would love to make it our place. Will you marry me?” He pulled a jewelry box out of his pocket and opened it to show her a ring.

She pulled back in horror. The ring was on a finger, a human finger.

Moving Day!

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Mom, what the heck is in this box, it’s so heavy?”

“Books of course, what else would be so heavy?”

“Mom, I know you love your books, but get rid of the books as I am not carrying these boxes back and forth every time you move, which is way too often as it is.”

March Speculative Fiction Prompt – 3/7/19


March Speculative Fiction Prompt – 3/7/19

Rules:

If interested, you have until March 23rd to submit a response. Happy Writing!

Note: I haven’t been getting all the pingbacks from stories. Yikes! Please be sure to link to this post, not to WP Reader. If you’re unsure, just pop a link in the comments below. Thanks!

Here’s how it works:

On the first of every month, I’ll post a speculative fiction prompt from Pixabay. These images are attribution free so you can use them on your blog without worrying about copyright restrictions.

Throughout the month, in order of receipt, I’ll reblog as many of your prompt-inspired creations as I can. And on the last day of each month, I’ll share a complete round-up of all contributions with links to the original posts. Visiting the blogs of participants is a great way to meet other speculative fiction writers.

Post your response on your own blog and link back to this post with a pingback, so I can reblog your post as well as include you in the month-end round-up. There are no word limits or style restrictions, but please keep it somewhat family friendly.

I encourage all authors to stop in and reply to the kind readers who leave comments about your story. This is a lovely way to build connections.

If you’re unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here. If you prefer, you can copy and paste your link into the comments of this post.

Above all, have fun.

Where’s The Sunshine?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Darkness is swallowing up my senses. I am all alone in this darkness. It is creeping up behind me. As though the sun is being eclipsed by the moon. I am trying to out run it. It seems as if it will always be this way. Always looking over my shoulder. Waiting for the sun to come out again. I need to rejoin the world. It is not good to be alone. Where is the sunshine?
