Once more with flash fiction with Priceless Joy and dozens of others! Make sure to check out all the stories HERE! The idea is, in PJ’s voice: We are given a prompt photo and approximately 75-175 words with which we use to create our story. Our photo prompt this week is from pixabay.com. The challenge is fun and addictive and everyone is invited to participate. For more information, click HERE.
Our Little Fiat
The children always danced around the car on the way home. No one knew who had left it in the street. But after a few months the graffiti artists had attacked it with spray paint and creativity. Shortly thereafter a garden in baskets was stuck on the roof of the little Fiat. No one had claimed that either, but it was well watered and lushly green. The Fiat was now a favorite feature in the neighborhood, and many a conversation at the local watering hole wondered how someone could just walk away from a car.
Gorge always smiled to himself as he sat in the corner nursing his beer, listening to these conversations. No one had ever tried to steal the car. If they had, they would find that the engine was gone!
