Week three of the Photo Fiction, and thank you everybody new who joined in last week. I enjoyed reading your stories.

Word count is 150 words. If you go over, you won’t be kicked out, finger waggled or stared at. It’s not going too far as to make you think you are writing an essay at school again.

The photo that is used is one that I have taken myself. Please link to my other blog with a copyright message. My other blog can be found here. Please include the photo in each story.

Please state at the beginning of your post if your post contains sex or violence so that readers who are against those genres can know to avoid them.

When commenting on another person’s story, please be nice. Remember, we all like advice, but harsh criticism may offend some people.

Please link back to here with your post so that other readers can know where your stories are. All stories with have a link below the photo so that others can read them as well.

My story is after the photo as well as on my other blog.

Have fun

Daniel had come to the country trying to escape the ravages of the city. When the invaders arrived, they had taken down the main elements of their culture. They had removed all royalty from the capital in seconds. The bazaar had been next; followed by the vehicle manufacturing plant.

Without those three elements, Beckrestin was finished. Apparently, the invaders had come across space using ships. Daniel went into the house that he was using. The invaders would not suspect a destroyed building as housing him and his sister. He had heard of a way to defeat them though; a weakness they would be able to exploit.

He sat with his sister for a while, watching her sleep. He worried about how she would cope while he was gone. He considered drawing a pictogram on the wall to let her know. In the end, he woke her.

“Alexia, I know how to defeat these creatures from Earth ….”

    1. I like the story 🙂 Odd how dreams do that. I don’t think I could really use my dream from a couple of days ago. Too horrific for me, let alone anyone else 😆

      Thank you for taking part, Jules, I appreciate it


    1. I think I may well do. I had to change a couple of bits as I decided on the twist. I had to change car to vehicle and humanity to culture. Not sure if I will use this as a pilot or as use it in other flash fiction


    1. Thank you 🙂 I wanted to give the view of being a slightly backward culture. Although they create vehicles, they don’t write as such 🙂


    1. Watch out Alastair…put some garlic in your pocket…when you go over to JWD’s
      …Just sayin’ …
      (We’ve been having some fun in JWD’s comment too!)


    2. I loved your story. Those extra 50 words can make all the difference 🙂 I’m honoured that you would use me in your story.


      1. I saw this happen in FF a few times with Rochelle and I couldn’t resist it. It should definitely be a tradition that the host ends up as a character. Well, it is now anyway! 🙂
