Sunday Photo Fiction – August 16th 2015

Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly writing challenge where a photo is used as a prompt for a piece of fiction using around 200 words. The piece doesn’t have to centre around exactly what the photo is, it can be just used as a basis for a story. This week’s photo is a pair of loved up doves, so you can use the image in any way you feel you want to.



“Come on Jolene,  give me a break!”  Houston chirped.

Turning her head around to look Houston in the eyes she replied, “so you think just because you come flying back into my life, I would be lovey dovey and pretend that everything is hunky dory?”

Houston moved closer to her and gave her a quick peck on her bill and said, “I never knew what love was until I met you, then when distance pulled us apart, I found what true love is.”

She flapped her wings in anger and moved a good distance from him. She said, “distance did not pull us apart Houston.  Your desire to satisfy your need to fly from city to city pulled us apart!  I know now that I can not trust you.”

Houston’s feathers puffed up as he said, “why can’t you trust me Jolene?”

She simply replied, “because you, Houston, are a flight risk.”

  1. Love the puns. The whole thing. Writers can be flighty too. But that is the joy of it –
    I wonder if it is an oxymornic activity if we use a quill and ink?

    Thanks for stopping by my multi mash. I have fun doing that, especially when the days just don’t seem long enough. Not every prompt has to be addressed by itself and nor does every story has to be a serial.
