Friday Fictioneers ~~ Feb 14, 2014

Yes, yes, I know it’s only Wednesday, but I have a busy schedule this week and I didn’t want to miss anything. And as Janet has so nicely provided the picture (great one at that), I wanted to get my story in.

Now most of you know the drill by now. We take a picture and write a 100 word story about that picture. It’s great fun and it helps to tighten your writing, so it’s a win-win challenge! If you would like to join us, just click on our hostess’s name, that would be Rochelle Wisoff-Fields,Β and you can read the few rules we try to uphold.Β 

If you just want to read more great stories based from the same photo, click here and there you are! Read, enjoy, comment!

Gazing at her painting, he thought he captured her allure. His lady in red. His lady in distress.

Blonde hair piled high, red lips with just a hint of pout, a true beauty.

She told of a husband that didn’t love her, a stifling of life that didn’t suit her.

With a shimmer of tears in her eyes, she said she needed to be free.

He agreed to free her of her burdens, for a price.

Sipping the Sangria she loved so much, he wondered how she fared in prison.

As he was the undercover cop who put her there.


I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  1. An undercover cop masquerading as a portraitist–or vice versa–I suspect that’s rare in real life but very effective in the land of fiction. Good story with an unexpected twist at the end.


  2. You painted a portrait in words for that very picture. Well done. And, man, does that glass of sangria look tempting – who cares if it’s the middle of winter?!
