Is is my response to this week’s flash fiction for aspiring writers prompt. In this prompt you are given a picture and asked to write a small piece of fiction inspired by the image.
This week’s image is as follows:
And this is the story that I have come up with: (125 words)
“Right, that’s it!” Nicola undid her seatbelt and stormed out of the car. “Marvin, you are really not a good driver. Stop reversing into parking bays, because you just cannot reverse!”
“Come on, Nicola, you know I am not that bad.”
From the pavement the young woman glared into the coloured car. “You might want to look at your own rooftop before you go making a comment like that.”
When he reached the privacy of his own driveway, Marvin noticed that a window box had neatly landed on his roof after he had reversed into a wall. He began to laugh as he saw the point that Nicola had been making.
Well, at least he had flowers to give her when she got there!
