Microfiction Monday #70

Lovely Susan from ‘Stony River’ organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan J She provides a picture 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 followed by my offerings.
The two young couples were absorbed in each other but Walter watched the lava flow and wondered if he should warn them of impending danger.

Alfred was unlucky with the ladies. He gazed into the distance. A beard might make him more attractive. He could feel a few bristles now.
(137characters)

While Jane and Theo read poetry and Josiah dreamed, May told John the facts of life. He couldn’t wait to practise! She bade him be patient.

  10. Flowing lava and indecision doesn't speak well of his character, does it?

  12. I don't know which one I liked the best--all three were good, which makes it hard to choose. I did like the beard one, especially...guess it was my favourite after all.

    #3 gave me the loudest snicker.

  20. I particularly liked the 'bristles' one. I knew his gesture reminded me of somethng but I couldn't think what.

  21. These are all great, JB! I will vote in favor the the third one. Is being patient a part of the birds and bees?

    My Nebraska friend, Cliff, in a comment left just the opposite of yours:
    "Amanda gently poked Carl in the chest, leaned forward and whispered, "If you try that again, you're a dead man."

    BTW, we are in London now visiting grandkids and kids.
