SUNDAY PHOTO FICTION November 29, 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.
It rained steady and hard.
My car’s tire went flat so I parked by a lake to change it. Old Yellow, my lucky spare tire tube, was going to be put to use.
I noticed how much the lake had risen. There was a car stuck in the middle of it. The water had risen to the top of it. Standing on the top of the car was a young woman screaming and pleading for help.
The water had rushed up to where my car was and washed Old Yellow out into the lake.
Old Yellow floated near the woman’s car and I yelled for her to jump on it. She turned to jump on the tire tube, but fell backwards. Just at that moment the tire tube shifted and she fell right in the middle of it! She floated down the river and I heard screaming from a distance.
I read an article in the newspaper the following day about a woman saved by floating on a yellow tire tube to safety.
