Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #41

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

The pretty house appeared to belong to loving person, 

but James knew different,Annabel wasn't honest,

the only person she loved was herself.


Beach Bum said...

Whoa! Now that could be a novel.

Great work!

MorningAJ said...

Ouch! Don't we all know one of those!
Neatly put.

Valerie said...

There are a few around. Good one, Pearl. I agree with Beach Bum, you could write more on this theme.

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

Polly Janos said...

Oooooh! Knife inserted and given a twist for good measure. I think we have all known an Annabel or two. Good one!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Beach x

Yes we do AJ

Why thankyou Valerie :)

I like all her decorations Bee ;)

You're right Polly.

Gledwood said...

There's no picture! But typing ANYTHING that makes sense in precisely 140 characters is genuis. Way smarter than I ever could be ha har!

anthonynorth said...

Ah, sadly so often the case.

SparkleFarkle said...

Oo! Oo! Oo! This sounds like a super-inviting intro to a romantically-charged, Valentine's Day-y "Who Done IT?"! I love a good murder mystery!

Daryl Edelstein said...

James is very smart .. he wasnt fooled by those heart shutters .. I bet his heart shuddered when he learned she was so self involved ..

Ron said...

OMG...that twist at the end was STELLAR!

BRAVA and three CHEERS!

I love the photo too.

Have a wonderful Monday, m'dear!


Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Well done. Lots of emotion in this one, and the hint of a deeper story below the surface.

Mama Zen said...

That would make a great opening for a short story!

Pat said...

Appearances, even of home decor, can sure be deceiving! Great SY!

Akelamalu said...

Oh sorry you can't see the picture Gleds, thanks.

cheshire wife said...

Appearances can be deceiving.

Grandma said...

Jim's thoughts seemed to hold a bit of a chill. This is a complete microfiction, but I agree that this has the potential for a much longer story. Nice work.

Travis Cody said...

Looks can be deceiving, eh?

Cloudia said...

A common malady!

Warm Aloha from Waikiki, Sistah
