Ron and Linda pulled up to their home and noticed that their front door had broken glass around the lock.

As they walked towards the door, they got out their cell phone to call the police. There was a sudden whoosh and the house went up in flames.

“Oh my God,” Linda shrieked.

Rules from Kat:

Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

Finally, have fun!

And REMEMBER…you have 280 characters (spaces and punctuation included), to tell your tale…and a week to do it. I can’t wait to see what you create this week.

Winter Swim Party

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Indoor pools were often sought after for birthday parties. They could be rented out for a couple of hours of swimming and cake, pizza and soda.

Brooke wanted to have a swim party for her birthday like her brother always did in July. Her mom reminded her that she was born in January and it was simply too cold for a swim party.

Her friend told her about the indoor pool that gave parties on the weekends and Brooke was excited.

She told her mom she wanted a swim party and gave her the information her friend had given her.

“Bob, how many times must I tell you to stop leaving the fridge door open,” Madge yelled. “Our electric bill is astronomical!”

“I told you, I am not leaving it open.”

“Then who is? The kids are in bed.”

That’s what they think Robbie and Sue laugh out in the dark hallway.

Lessons Learned

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Jean and John were out for a ride with the kids. The kids were warned not to stray off and to stay away from the ruins off to their side.

Looking over their shoulders they realized the adults were deep in conversation and so they took off for the ruins.

Just as they neared the buildings, Marshall’s horse tripped and broke his leg. The boys screamed for the adults. When then got there and saw the situation they had no choice, but to shoot the ailing horse. The boys were heart-broken. It was a terrible lesson they had to learn.

It was supposed to be the worst storm ever, but John could see deep within the storm cloud a huge space ship. He tried to show everyone, but no one would listen to him. He was positive the aliens were there to take over and had taken the chance to hide in the huge storm cloud.

Susie was driving on a learner’s permit and was anxiously waiting to try practicing parallel parking so she would be ready when her driving test came up. Unfortunately, with her birthday in January snow was always a possibility. The roads were never clear enough for her parents to allow her to practice parking.

Waking up that weekend she saw no snow and the roads were clear. She ran to wake her parents to see if one of them would take her out. Trailing behind her mom she got to the car only to find that they had been blocked in.

Mom’s memory was gone. She lived in a nursing home and no longer talked. We had been asking her about the letters from Jerry to no avail.

We wondered if he was someone who would need her current location and condition. They weren’t from dad as he was long gone. These were new.
