Yellow Car

Yellow Car
Yellow Car

I know I have to run. Don’t know who, don’t know why, but someone’s coming to take me away. Take me somewhere bad. They unlock the door. Make soothing noises. Won’t fool me. I shoot past, dodge the guards. I’m up the stairs before anyone recovers. The high walls aren’t high enough to keep me in. The sun’s glaring. I have to shield my eyes.

A man in a yellow car barks at me.

‘Get in.’

He looks like a raptor.

‘Do you want to be caught? Get in.’

Don’t like him. I’ll run from him first opportunity I get.


Lynn from Word Shamble nominated me for the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge – cheers Lynn! This is my second entry.

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you. Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.

Today, I nominate Izzy from Izzy-grabs-life.
