The idea of Sunday Photo Fiction is to create a story / poem or something using around about 200 words with the photo as a guide. It doesn’t have to be centre stage in the story, I have seen some where the placement is so subtle, the writer states where it is.
Once you have written and posted your story, please clink on the link which will take you to the little froggy below so that it is added to the collection and we can all have a read.
The main object is to have fun.
Here is this week’s photo prompt.
Cable Car Ride
Alice bit the inside of her mouth, her stomach was churning, she was afraid to look down, she was afraid to look ahead, she was just afraid. Why had she let Tom persuade her that this would be fun? She hated heights. She hated sports. She hated enclosed see-through bubble type cabs swinging freely in mid-air.
Tom put his arm around her shoulder and pulled her into his chest. ‘It’s alright,’ he whispered softly as he stroked her hair in soothing motions. ‘I won’t let anything happen to you. Trust me, please.’ His voice was low and seductive, lulling her in to a false sense of security.
A gust of wind rocked the cable car, Alice grabbed at Tom’s shirt, he placed his free hand over hers squeezing it lightly, reassuring her with his touch.
Approaching the summit Alice took in the vista, a clear picture of nature’s beauty enveloped Alice’s senses, she gasped in surprise and delight.
She turned back to Tom, her eyes alight with wonder. He reached into his pocket, glancing around nervously at the other passengers, he then produced a small velvet box, he opened it one handed and uttered the words she longed to hear.
