Friday Fictioneers 19th June

Rochelle is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers challenge.
This week, she has chosen one of her own photographs for the prompt.
Every day she would look out of the window watching people pass by.
She never saw them above shin level, but got to recognise regular passersby by their walk, leg shape or shoes.
Today was the turn of the window cleaner.
He would place his ladder against the wall and clean the windows above hers.
She thought it would be nice if just once he would kneel down to clean hers.
But then he might see her ……… and she wasn’t supposed to be there.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    Now we wonder how long she has been squatting and if it is safe for her to do so.. and why is that place “available” and why… yeah. You succeeded, Di!

  4. Iain Kelly says:

    Nice cliffhanger. What has she been up to? I could feel her need to make contact with a fellow human.

  5. neilmacdon says:

    Probably better she endures her loneliness and stays unobserved

  6. Ohh a very intriguing tale, Di.

  7. Dear Di,

    Now I’m wondering who she is and why she’s where she shouldn’t be. I pictured a homeless person who’s found shelter. Well done.



  8. Very mysterious. I love it!

  9. James McEwan says:

    Ah! loneliness in hiding. A clever turn at the end adding a sense of furtive secrecy.

  10. You’ve got us all wondering! Well done.

    Homeless, perhaps? Hiding from someone, in any case. This would make a great intro for a long story 🙂
