Microfiction Monday #48 Mysteries!


Lovely Susan from 'Stony River' organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan J She provides a picture to prompt imagination and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less – including punctuation! Click here to read more marvels of microfiction – and perhaps join in. It's fun!

Here is this week's picture accompanied by my story.

The girls were rooted to the spot. Light shone behind them. One had grown a cross on her hat. Strange symbols appeared on her sister's coat.

  4. I like the speculative angle on this microfiction. I wonder what was happening to them?! Loved it.

    p.s. I’m running a competition this week and holding a blogfest in November. If you get time, pop along and have a look.

  14. I laughed a lot at this one! Maybe aliens within the shining light are doing experiments on them.

  15. The left one looks like my mother, even the hat, except that kind of cross or whatever it is on the top !
    Apparently already at that time the fashion was the same.

  16. Soon the spaceship would take them back to their home planet. :)

  17. LOL. In previous times they would have been burned at the stake for wearing symbols like that.

  18. They do look rooted there! That was a fun one.

  19. I am reading a book about twin girls about the era of your girls.

    It is gilda O'neill's The Bells of Bow.

    I am spending too much time blogging so reading is very slow.

    BTW, what about the two us get a beach comber machine and try our luck to find some Roman hats and artifacts? Just heard the news of that lucky man.
