Sunday Photo Fiction – December 17th 2017

Details of the challenge can be found here:

The sound of tapping on glass was subtle at first, then it got louder and more insistent.
Vera and George had been watching a repeat of one of the soaps on TV and when they first heard it turned up the volume, settling down to their hot chocolate and marshmallows.
George suddenly sat bolt upright and turned the TV off.
‘That’s morse code,’ he said.
‘What? Give me that! It was just getting to the good bit!’
‘No. Hang on, let me get a pen……………’
L   E   T     M   E     O   U   T

L   E   T     M   E     O   U   T

The figure in the snowglobe was just raising his fist to begin again when George saw him and pounced.
Fake snow fluttered around the snowman within who waved his arms about to get it out of his eyes.
Sheepishly, he grinned, dislodging one of the six pieces of his coal smile.
‘Sorry,’ he said, ‘but do you think you could get me out of here?’
‘Why? You’re part of an ornament.’
‘ Pah! Just because I didn’t want to melt and die, this is what the fools came up with!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Haha! I love it. It makes perfect sense. An snowman stuck in a globe would want to get out, obviously. Brilliant take on the prompt.

  2. Iain Kelly says:

    Haha, I love the reasoning for his imprisonment. Well done 🙂

  3. James says:

    Not sure putting a snowman in a globe of water would help.

  4. Joy Pixley says:

    Sometimes the solution is even worse than the original problem! Smart snowman, to use morse code. He used it with the right audience too; it would have been completely lost on me, I’m sad to say.

  5. I don’t trust this guy, I’m sure he’ll wreak havoc in their lives as soon as they liberate him!

  6. I don’t know, it makes sense to me. Get him out of there. Keep him in a cool place. Good fun and writing pensitivity. 😀 — Suzanne
