Kreative Kue 17, issued on this site last week, asked for submissions based on a photograph depicting four men and a Land Rover in a safari park.
Two stories resulted.
From Sacha Black, who blogs at sachablack.co.uk (please visit Sacha’s blog, it’s well worth following) offered this tale:
Lost By Sacha Black
“What exactly do you mean by ‘we’re lost’,” I snapped, shoving my hand on my hip.
Reggie raised his eyebrow at me, and pouted.
“Which bit of ‘we’re sodding lost,’ did you not understand, Syra?”
“Well, why weren’t you following the map?”
His moustache rippled as he gritted his teeth. A red sheen started to cover his nose and cheeks, and I thought better than to point it out.
“Ok, so you followed the map,” I said tapping his arm as the red swelled to a deep purple, “but honestly darling, were in the middle of the dessert, weren’t we meant to be in in the capital city?”
“THAT’S BLOODY IT, your map reading the rest of the way.”
My own effort entitled “Safari sogoody” is here.
Let’s see what we can do with this image:
Using this photo as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene or poem, and either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at email@example.com before 6pm on Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you).
Go on. You know you want to. Let your imagination soar. I shall display the entries, with links to your own blog or web site, next Monday.
