I will admit now that I have no idea what the truck in this weeks photograph is, and welcome any clarification. To me, though, it looked like a blurry picture of a firetruck, which set off tons of questions in my head. Why did someone take this picture of an emergency vehicle? And what might cause it to be blurry(outside the obvious answers)? And, this is what popped into my head. Hope you enjoy it. 🙂
This is kind of a weird story. I had an idea for it when I picked the word, but forgot it between then and now. I had no idea what to write about, and even thought about changing the word, but wasn’t sure what to change it to. Then, I borrowed my friend’s tarot cards to get some ideas. Originally, this story was going to be a lot longer, in terms of events. But, when I saw how long it was getting, and then realized I had not idea how I was going to make it make sense in the middle, I scrapped the idea and went with just what I wrote. It’s nothing like the story I was originally planning, and nothing like the one the tarot cards suggested, bu gosh dang, I’m proud of this one! I hope you enjoy it. Tomorrow will be my last day of…pretty much everything that eats my time (A-Z blogging, Camp NaNo, college classes…). I don’t know what I’ll do with the extra time after that. Anyway, I hope you enjoy! On Wednesday, I will be make to my normally (erratical, random, un-)scheduled posting.
It must say something about me that I’ve written two stories about two people with horrible lives two days in a row. Compared to yesterday, though, this story was pretty easy to get through. It kind of gave me a feelings of relief, actually. So, I hope you enjoy it. While I feel it is a bit awkward at times, I kind of enjoyed writing it, and hope you feel the same reading it.
My second Friday Fictioneers story! I must say, I really like the way this one turned out. I got in everything I wanted, and I got exactly 100 without even editing! Please tell me what you think about it. I really enjoyed the feedback I got last week, and look forward to reading more comments, as well as seeing what others came up with for this photo prompt!
I sat in the kitchen, staring at Mama’s oil lamps.
You’re such a weirdo!
It was another hard day at school.
Don’t you own any normal clothes?
But I know how to deal with it.
I can deal with her.
The candles before me flicker faster.
What are you doing?
I’ll never have to deal with her again.
Sara? I was only kidding!
She’ll learn her lesson.
W-what’s wrong with my chest
She’ll never make fun of me again.
Stop! It hurts!
“Sara? Is there something wrong with the candles?”
I quickly turn out the lamps.
Quick announcement: Just so that my subscribers know, I am participating in Blogging from A to Z next month, but I still intend to do Friday Fictioneers as well. So, don’t freak out if there are two posts from me in your feed on Wednesday instead of one. Depending on how well I can keep up with my posts and such, I may move my Friday Fictioneer story to Sundays, since they’re the only day I won’t be posting a full-length story. Wish me luck, and I wish the same to anyone else who my already have decided to participate, or who might decide to participate, too! 😀 Also, if for whatever reason, you are subscribed to me and absolutely do not want to get two posts from me every Wednesday, just say something to me in the comments, and I’ll make sure I move my FF posts to Sundays. If it’s all the same to everyone else, though, I’ll probably just stick to the 2-posts thing, since it’d be easier to remember.
