Sunday Photo Fiction – May 19, 2019

Deserted, Here Too?

(Continued from last week)

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Myra had promised the twins that they could get food at Wendy’s tonight before the carnival. They piled in the car. Myra had to keep telling them to be quiet.

As she pulled into town, she saw a huge black cloud forming over the area where the Wendy’s was. She didn’t like the look of the cloud as she envisioned a huge storm hitting the area just as they got to the carnival.

She rushed the twins through dinner and then as they headed back to the car, she saw there were no people around at all. The cars on the highway were sitting there empty. She didn’t like this.

She took the twins back inside to use their phone. She wanted to call home and check on her older son. They looked around and all the employees were gone.

Myra headed back to the car and got the twins settled. As she turned around and turned the car on, she saw a small figure with an arrow pointed at her. She quickly accelerated and ran him over. The car was suddenly covered with little men all aiming their arrows at them. She locked the doors.

Welcome to 2019 and Sunday Photo Fiction! Each week I will post a new photograph, taken either by myself or donated by a member of the community. The challenge is to write a story using 200 words or less based, on the prompt. When you are done, post your story and the photo prompt on your blog.

I know you will not be disappointed.

    What a mysterious and creepy turn of events! I was worried enough when everyone else disappeared, but this wasn’t at all what I was expecting — and who would? Interested to see what happens next…

      Thank you! I took that picture and I remember that storm cloud giving me the creeps and when I looked really close I didn’t see anyone and that restaurant is usually busy. It was linked to last weeks.

      Thank you! I don’t take a lot of photos if that is what you are looking for. I just happened to have that photo handy and she was asking for photos. If you are looking for flash fiction that is a possibility if I have the time. Since I started writing my memoirs, my time is limited.
