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.

  1. Too many questions asked and not answers- where/ who is she running from and why, who’s the ‘raptor man’ and how did he crop up exactly in the place she needed someone? I need to know!
    Great entry- so much said in so few words 🙂

  2. This piece begs the question if any of these characters can be trusted, even the narrator as there’s such potential for her to be an unreliable narrator (which is a great thing). I’m kept on my toes by the shear panic and determination.

    Thanks for nominating me into this challenge! Of course I accept 😀 One question, is there a general consensus over the word count limit (how long or short can it be)? Or is that up to me?

    1. You bet she’s unreliable 😀

      I’m glad you accepted – it’s a fun challenge! I’ve not seen anything on word count, so I’ll say it’s entirely up to you. Looking forward to your photos/stories 🙂

      1. I’m posting my first tomorrow (well, tomorrow for me). 🙂 Looking forward to reading what you think. And I’m open to suggestions if you see anything that can be improved.
