Flying High by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Mary took her two sons, John and James to an amusement park. They were interested in the Ferris wheel. Mary told them they had 2 hours and to stay together. “Text me if there’s a problem.”

Noting that the Ferris wheel had been stationary for a while Mary worried. She headed over there and found that the wheel was broken down and she didn’t know if her boys were on it or not. “No text!”

She watched in horror as she saw first one, then her 2nd son climb over the side of the wheel and start to climb down.

It seemed like a pile of dirty rags just lying there on her bed. Samantha stared. It hadn’t been there this morning. Unsure what it was exactly, she was surprised when it not only moved, but a cry sounded within. She jumped back expecting a rat. Instead it was a cute pug.

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.

Vintage Planter? by Teresa Smeigh 2019

It was a poor part of the city, but the people tried very hard to make it look nicer. They painted the boarded over windows and doors bright colors and designs. Some of them were even painted by people with talent and were real masterpieces.

Children running and playing in the area were suddenly stopped by a new object placed around the corner of one of the unkempt buildings. It was an old piano, missing its keys and top and used as a planter. The top was filled with all different kinds of flowers, the colors complimenting the painted boards.

Rambo stood in the shadows, out of the rain, watching for the signal to get ready to enter the train.

The signal came, the train slowed to a stop. Entering, he pulled the gun and searched the cars rapidly looking for his daughter and ex-wife. He removed his daughter at gunpoint.

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.”

Racing Antics by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Numerous scooters and dirt bikes raced loudly through the wooded trails. The boys suddenly decided to dart out on the road. Here insurance and helmets were required.

“Cop,” someone announced.

The boys split up and raced off fast. Kenny was tearing down the road back to his house. He swung the scooter around the corner and dismounted in front of his house, leaving it running with the key in it.

He jumped off and ran past his startled parents just as the cop pulled up and inspected the hot engine and keys in the ignition. “Son, is this your scooter?”

Donna searched for a sign for the scavenger hunt. She was in an industrial park.

She found a sign that said, “THIS IS IT!” and pointed down to a box.

She heard a yip!

Opening the box, she found a puppy. What can you expect from a scavenger hunt put on by the SPCA?
