Mystery at the Bottom of the Path
“You’re lying,” Jack whispered back. “No way a dead body is down there.”
“Sure is! You can check it out if you don’t believe me,” Kenny whispered back again.
“Why should I go check? You said there is a dead body down there. You go,” Jack shot back.
“Fine, we’ll go together!”
Jack hesitated before nodding. “All right.”
Gingerly, the two boys went down the steps and Kenny guided Jack to the body.
“There! I wasn’t lying, was I?” Kenny looked triumphantly at Jack.
“Well, it doesn’t look- Argh!” Jack cried out. The lifeless hand had grabbed his ankle. Jack immediately kicked to loosen the grip and scrambled up the path, screaming.
Kenny chortled. “Coward,” he muttered. “And thanks, Gor!”
His elder brother, Gordon, got up and grinned. “That was more fun than I thought actually. But you still have to clean my room for a month as you promised!”
If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.
Here’s how it works:
Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE
Here are some suggestions:
- An answering photo
- A cartoon
- A joke
- A caption
- An anecdote
- A short story (flash fiction)
- A poem
- A newly minted proverb, adage or saying
- An essay
- A song—the lyrics or the performance
You have plenty of scope and only two criteria:
- Your creative offering is indeed yours
- Your writing is kept to 150 words or less
If you post a link in the comments section of this post I’ll be able to find it
If you include Crimson’s Creative Challenge as a heading, WP Search will find it (theory)
by ‘Searching’ in the WP Reader (fingers crossed)
