50 Word Thursday #85 – The Results

Hi All,

So, again its time for the results and this week its number 85 but don’t panic Kristian will take up the mantle tomorrow and provide Number 86 but first lets see what happened last week.

The Rules:

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

Here’s the picture:

85

And here is the prompt I provided on short notice,

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared – Jonas Jonasson

Sadje from Keep It Alive

This is my take on the prompt:

Martin sat down in the shelter with a frown, urban legend said this place was haunted by a hundred year old man who climbed out of a window and disappeared.  It seemed a bit ludicrous to him.

If you chose to climb out a window and disappear, why would you come here and haunt this place?  It was just a lake; there was nothing special or sinister about it.

Deep in thought he almost jumped when a low trembling voice spoke.

“There’s a toilet and it has a ramp.”

Martin rose to his feet, perhaps it was time to go.
