“Raymond, are you sure this is the right place?” Jackson asked.
“Yes, the place is old but it is the original photo centre. They never bothered to change the name.”
“Alright, I’ll do it since it is the only photo centre that deals with life changes. But, I think the name of their business is misleading.”
The saleswoman wrote down Jackson’s request and directed him to a room.
Jackson walks out of the room, stands in front of a full length mirror, sees his reflection, which shows straight pointed ears, and fur all over his body! He screams, but all he hears is a loud barking sound!
Jackson looked like the Rin -Tin -Tin dog!
The saleswoman didn’t understand why he was so upset, after all, he did tell her he wanted to look like a famous actor.
The idea of Sunday Photo Fiction is to create a story / poem or something using around about 200 words with the photo as a guide. It doesn’t have to be centre stage in the story, I have seen some where the placement is so subtle, the writer states where it is.
“Joey! Look at those pigs over there,” Suzy said with excitement.
Joey looked over at her and said, “Suzy, those animals are not pigs. They are rhinos.”
“Why are they called that?”
“I don’t know, but they are really ugly!”
Joey and Suzy’s mom spoke up and said, “all animals have their own look, just like humans do.”
Suzy laughed and pointed to Joey saying, “Joey is like a rhino.”
“I am not! I don’t look like a rhino.”
“No, you are right, you don’t look like a rhino, you look like a nut!”
“Stop it, Suzy!”
“Joey is a nut, he has a rubber butt, every time he turns around he goes putt, putt! “
“Mom! Make her stop it.”
“That’s enough, I want both of you silent for the next ten minutes. I need peace and quiet,” their mom remarked.
This week’s photo prompt is provided by, Sonya-only 100 words.
Prima Donna walked leisurely across the lawn feeling proud as a peacock! She was thinking to herself, “yes, I am proud as a peacock, I am a peacock! I’m bright and beautiful and every peacock is envious of me.”
She looked around at the other peacocks and felt sorry for them. They were pretty, but did not come close to her beauty.
They looked at her as if they had seen a ghost! She couldn’t understand why. Then, as she strutted past a reflecting glass, she felt horrified! All of her gorgeous colors had turned white.
She chided herself for eating all the white jelly beans the other day. Now, she looked ghost-like and had to endure months of stares before her beautiful colors come back!
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 center around exactly what the photo is, it can be just used as a basis for a story.
“Look at that Milton, Freddy is bringing in two more of the Blue Devil Race cars,” Baxter yelled.
“Wow! I can’t believe they did it again, ” said Milton.
“Well, you know how the old saying goes, ‘monkey see, monkey do’. “
“Sure, but it seems impossible for it to keep happening month after month.”
“Old man Freeman always insisted that his sons have everything alike. It’s been that way since they were babies. I guess, subconsciously, they are living up to that madness of his.”
“Sure, but wrecking cars the same color, on the same day, and the same race is what I’d call going overboard on the old man’s tradition. I don’t care if they are twins, and have always had everything exactly alike, that’s just plain excessive!”

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.”
