Hoodwink – Friday Fictioneers

Here is this week’s entry into the weekly challenge brought to us by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

Here are the rules: Use the photo as inspiration, write a hundred(ish) words – and share! Here goes my offering for this week – and I welcome your comments again!

– Hoodwink –

‘Why did you take the photo through the window? Don’t you know anything? Look at the reflections!’

‘The keys have gone missing. And you know how it is – the estate agent needs pictures for the website today…’

‘They’re on the same ring as your car keys –in your goddamned hand! What’s wrong with you?’

‘You know I get flustered… you know that they want the pictures –’

‘-for the website today, yes, yes, you said! But we’re not going to sell grandfather’s workshop to anyone with crappy pictures like that!’

Selena strode away, shoulders hunched high, back ramrod straight. Round one to us, gramps, I thought.

  1. Liked how you played on the quality of the photo in your story. And I did take it through the window because the place was locked, but I didn’t have a key.

  2. HA! As Punch said to Judy, THAT’S THE WAY TO DO IT! Methinks grampa doesn’t really want to part with his workshop.
    I’m not writing this week, but I’d love it if you’d drop by my blog for a second anyway, I posted a big announcement today

    1. Grandpa is determined to keep hold of it, for sure!

      Oooh, a mysterious blog announcement – now that’s intriguing…. I’m popping over in a little bit, for I can resist everything but temptation….
