“Some days expand, Mona thought; their seams stretch and they hold more than a day’s worth of time.” – This Must Be The Place – Kate Racculia

Kristian form Tales from the mind of Kristian Sadje from Keep It Alive Sara from Relax, It’s All Write This is my take on the prompt: Some days expand, Mona thought; their seams stretch and they hold more than a day’s worth of time. It was her first thought when she’d returned to awareness after her reincarnation and it was almost impossible to forget. Days were endless when you’d taken the form of driftwood, it seemed.

50 Word Thursday #109

109

Bob was a musician, he loved to make his guitar sing, he loved to make his drums pound, he loved to lift his voice and bellow at the sky.  It was such a simple thing to be doing, but something strange was happening.

Sitting in his studio he watched the scene outside his window change as he began to play the opening chords to A Hard Day’s Night, unsurprised when an English Double Decker bus suddenly appeared.

Outback Australia didn’t get many double decker buses trundling along the dirt roads, and then he shrugged, beat a yellow submarine any day.

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!

And the words,

“… grabbed the pistol from me and fired it into the couch.” – Louisiana Longshot – Jana DeLeon

Charles from Potatoes, and the promise of more Potatoes “They’ve gotten into the building!”, Trey exclaimed. He grabbed the pistol and fired it into the couch. The couch stopped moving, but a dinette set was trying to break down the door in the kitchen. Trey fired some shots through that door, stilling some of the uproar in the kitchen. “I’ve got fifty rounds left”, Trey stated. Diane looked at the rest, white as a ghost. “I’ve been bitten”, she said softly. Trey wanted to ask if she was sure, but she had already become a recliner… a Laz-e-girl if you will. When her transformation was complete, she advanced on her former friends. “Kill it”, Don shouted. “I can’t!”, Trey protested. “Look, whatever WAS Diane is just springs and foam, now”. He snatched the revolver and fired two shots into Recliner-Diane. “Nice!”, said Becky, “I call dibs” Don complained, “No fair! I want to sleep on Diane!” Chelsea from A Wife, My Verse, and Every Little Thing This is my take on the prompt: Sometimes I’m of the opinion that I’m misunderstood, that others chose to react rather than to consider the facts, that they believe they know best, when they know nothing. Let me explain, yet again, what happened? Ok, so yes I did have a gun, I mean I was practicing for the part of Dirty Harry, so of course I had a gun.  It wouldn’t be Dirty Harry if I didn’t have one, would it? And yes I did point it at them but I was getting into the roll, he didn’t have to grab the pistol from me and fire it into the couch, that was going overboard, wasn’t it? What?  You think they had some justification?  That’s just plain discrimination, that is. You’re judging me, you’re stating because of who I am I can’t be trusted with a loaded gun. What am I?  An orangutan of course, but really?

Isaiah46ministries from Help From Heaven This is my take on the prompt: “So George, I stared at her as if she’d lost her mind, I mean really did she think I was going to demean myself like that again?” “What happened then?” “Well, you know.” “No Max.” “Well, I kind of got, you know …” “Max?” “Calculus George, I did calculus.” “Oh.”

50 Word Thursday #105

105

Some things had to be seen to be believed, Megan decided as she stared out on the bleak, hostile landscape in distaste.

When she’d received the note she hadn’t taken it seriously, she hadn’t seen her older brother for years, so to hear from him out of the blue was disconcerting to say the least.

But it wasn’t until she read the note that she had to remind herself to breathe, almost remind her heart to beat which had led to this moment and the realization that she hated her brother.

How dare he get held hostage in this wasteland.

And the words,

“Cowards”, Ida Belle yelled out the front door. – Louisiana Longshot – Jana DeLeon

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian Sara from Relax It’s All Write This is my take on the prompt: It was her birthday; the least her invited guests could do was embrace the day, not scurry like panic stricken mice out of the door. “Cowards,” Ida Belle yelled at their retreating backs. Who said skinny dipping was for those between 18 – 28? She had a fine figure at 80.

50 Word Thursday #103

103

As he leant forward, his expression earnest, Jamie had the first of many forgiving’s.

“But in the song there was a secret little inner song.”

Nodding agreement seemed the wisest course as she glanced over his shoulder, hopeful someone would interrupt.

“It’s in between the beats, you just have to listen really hard.”  Perhaps sensing her doubts he frowned, “Don’t tell me you can’t hear it.”

She could hear it, the melody loitering in the song but that wasn’t the problem.  Pursing her lips Jamie glanced around quickly, this could be one fatal mistake.

“You’re a dog and you’re talking.”
