Writing Prompt “Stories By 5”

Loads of ways this challenge can pan out. Check out the options and choices below:

Although there’s no connection to the image in my story, I’ve opted for
Topic: Stranded by the side of the road
Names : male Zephyr, female Zuri.
Instrument: piano
Scent: honeysuckle
Verb: surrender.

Zephyr and Zuri stood by the roadside and looked at each other with dismay.
They were on their way to a concert, and had been little more than two miles away when their van surrendered all vehicular life and simply died.
‘Why couldn’t we play violins?’ Zuri asked. ‘At least that way we could hitch a lift or even walk to the venue. There’s no way we can take it with us.’
The Grand Piano stood majestic in the van.
Zuri lifted the lid and 88 ivory keys smiled up at her. She grinned.
‘I know what you’re thinking!’ Zephyr laughed.
‘Why not? I need the practice anyway, and what else is there to do until the breakdown truck arrives?’
So in the middle of a lay-by, Zuri sat down to play, breathing in the wonderful scent of wild honeysuckle from the hedgerow, heedless of the passing traffic.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
