Friday Fictioneers: It Happened Like This

Some photo prompts leave me scratching my head for awhile and then posting a story I’m not really sure I like. This would be one such week. (Mind you, this isn’t a plea for compliments. It’s just the way it sometimes is!) At any rate, here we go…

It Happened Like This

“You really think that monstrosity’s gonna get you a girl?”

“Dude, like your rust bucket’s any better? She’d fall straight through the floor! I, on the other hand, could literally pick her up.”

“Because that’s what every girl wants, to be swept up in a stupid, smiling scoop. What’s the point of that thing, anyway?”

“Hey, you never know.”

“Face it, man. Neither of us has a chance… Ouch! Get your elbow out of my ribcage!”

“Shh, it’s Rachel Parker. Don’t embarrass us, dude.”

“Hey, boys! My bike has a flat. Can either of you give me a lift?”

  1. I could see a girl being attracted to the novelty of that Edsel. Hell, I’m attracted to it. Though, I think I’d rather be the lifter than the liftEE. (damned auto-correct wouldn’t let me spell like I wanted to.)

  2. Dear Lisa,

    Your story turned out fine, don’t worry. It’s a testament to the truth of the Boy Scout motto (Be prepared!) Now the rest of the story will be about the boys falling all over each other to give Rachel a ride. Good job with this prompt.



  3. Indeed! You and your bike. Just slip your bike in the front loader. You did fine with this prompt! I think everyone probably had a big question mark in their “thought bubbles” this week.
