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.
HOUSTON AND JOLENE
“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.”
