Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #22


Grandma at Grandma's Goulash provides a picture and a word prompt for this Microfiction Meme and the rules are use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words.


Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.


This week's word is TEPID here's the picture and my offering using the picture and word of the week  in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.




Amy opened her eyes, relieved to see the tepid sunshine seeping through the tiny window, 

it meant she had survived another day in captivity.

Valerie said...

Oh dear, another unexpected ending. I do hope her incarceration doesn't last long.

MorningAJ said...

Bit more serious than your usual offerings..... Good one though. I don't know what I'd have made from that photo.

Akelamalu said...

I know Bee :(

I hope someone finds her too Ron

Me too Valerie

Yes it is a bit more serious than usual AJ, it's just what popped into my head when I saw the picture.

secret agent woman said...

Yeesh. But tepid is one of my favorite words.

Daryl said...

Oh scary ..

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

So sad a tale, but she seems to yet harbor hope, which is a nice positive twist. Great MF.

Akelamalu said...

Well glad you liked at least one word saw ;)

Yes I suppose it is Daryl

Grandma's Goulash said...

You've told a lot in a few words. I'd love to see this one turned into a longer tale.

Monica Manning said...

You're right. We are on the same page. And I like your use of 'tepid'. Think our girls are in the same house?

theothersideofparis said...

But perhaps she deserved her fate?

PS I see you've changed your blog template. Very jolly and bright.

Akelamalu said...

I think there's a definite story behind this Grandma ;)

Thanks Monica. They could be in the same house, maybe prisoners of a serial abductor?

Possibly Dumdad. Glad you like my new template. :)

Mama Zen said...

Wow! I didn't see that coming!

SparkleFarkle said...

Whoa! I guess a luke-warm sun would be something to look forward to if you were being held captive...? ... ...*hair raises on arms and back of the neck* I'M GETTING CREEPED. Sorry, I'm outta here! *quietly backs out of blog, then runs!*

Linda said...

Alright then, so why is she in captivity? Is it a prison for crimes or a prison of abduction?

Inquiring minds wanna know!!

storytreasury said...

Oh, poor thing. This deserves a longer story.

Pat said...

Ooh, wonderfully creepy! I hope the Criminal Minds squad is on this right away.

Helen said...

Oh poor Amy! Hope she escapes soon!

Jim said...

As soon as I saw this picture I saw doom.
Poor Amy, when will be her day for rescue?

Susan Fobes said...

This does look like it might be the last place someone would look. Great take this week!

Melanie said...

uh-oh...that sounds like a scene from an awesome thriller...

cheshire wife said...

I hate to think what it must be like inside.

Akelamalu said...

Ah that was my plan Mama Zen :)

If one was incarcerated it might be the only thing to look forward to Sparkle Farkle :)

I leave it to your imagination Linda ;)

I guess there is a longer story in there if only I could be bothered to write it storytreasury ;)

Glad you enjoyed it Pat

I hope she does too Helen!

Who knows when or IF she will be rescued Jim? :0

Thanks Susan x

Could be Melanie :)

Hardly the Hilton I would think Cheshire Wife ;)

What an interesting take.

Elaine said...

Sad. Sounds like a good opening line for a novel.
