Thursday photo prompt: Beyond #writephoto

Thanks to Sue for this picture to inspire us:
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rainbow-rayed sun shining through the apex of a triangle created by two trees leaning together. The viewer stands on dark, shadowed ground,while the gap through the trees leads to a brilliant green lawn.

That last drink must have been spiked.
He could usually handle his liquor, but something was amiss tonight.
How did he get here anyway?
And that light was so damn bright!
And it was quiet.
Too quiet.
Where was everybody?
In fact, where was he?
It suddenly registered that the light was travelling upwards and leaving him behind.
As if it had deposited him somewhere…………………….
The memory hit him like a freight train.
He remembered everything now.
The light had attracted him in the first place and he’d been enveloped by it, absorbed into it, and it taken him beyond the realms of the comfort zone of a whisky bottle.
He looked at his watch to discover he’d lost five days on his trip to ‘somewhere else’.
Who would believe him if he started on about abductions and little green men (they were yellow actually)
He needed a drink……………. if he could find a pub.

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.

    That’s a good one Di, I wander if he had been abducted by aliens or just been lost in an alcoholic daze ! We went on a holiday to Jersey (Chanel Island) years ago about 30yrs infact. My sister in law’s then partner went on an alcoholic binge and lost three days! Would you believe that? I loved your version 💜💜

  5. Not being a drinker, I can’t comment on lost days, but then again I’ve never been abducted. At least I don’t think I have…

  6. Ah, what the bottle can produce. Was he truly abducted or just in a drunken stupor. Nice one.
