FFfAW Challenge-Week of July 11, 2017

Hope to get this in early as we’re away tomorrow:


This week’s photo prompt is provided by Grant-Sud.

It was his first time, and he didn’t know if he was ready, but the others were all in their places.
Each had their routed instructions, and it was a race against the clock.
He felt he had a slight advantage, being on one of the higher buildings.
In theory, it meant once he was moving, the momentum would increase and thus improve his time.
All he had to do was start, get the rhythm going, and run like the wind across the rooftops and walled buildings. The adrenalin began to flow………….

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  2. Iain Kelly says:

    Some of these running stunts you see online are crazy. I hope he comes out of it unscathed!

    Interesting take on the prompt – thanks for sharing! I love how you’ve left it at the end there; how will he do, as it’s his first time?

  4. James says:

    Do they ever just go “splat”?

  5. Love the story line, how is is running across the rooftops of the buildings! Great story Pensitivity!

    As a person who is afraid of heights, I can’t understand the concept behind free running or parkour. Well written piece, capturing the nervous energy of the protagonist. Cheers, Varad

  7. Jade M. Wong says:

    So, was this a scene of him doing parkour or some other stunt? I could feel the adrenaline in the writing!
