Today I was in the mood for an inspiring challenge that was also fun.
And it arrived. Click here if you want to find out more about Friday Fictioneers and read all the other entries here. Briefly the challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by a picture prompt. Here’s this Friday’s prompt and my story below:
“Jesus Miles!” his wife laughed. “You run just like a girl!” She and Sally exchanged amused glances. Bruce grinned.
“Well done, old boy!”
Miles, breathless and puffing, felt himself go red.
Wordlessly, he handed his wife the soft pink scarf the wind had snatched from her neck. Philippa had shrieked and Miles had immediately raced after it – rescuing it from the wind’s grasp, bringing it back to her like a prize.
She accepted it graciously. “Thank you my precious sweet! ” she said solemnly and patted him, smiling at Bruce.
Everyone liked Philippa. You couldn’t fault her. She was so disarming.
