MicroFiction Monday

Susan at Stony River Farm hosts Microfiction Monday. She posts a picture and you compose a story in 140 characters. You can click on the link under the title to get further instructions. To help you along she has posted a wonderful link that counts your characters for you! How great is that! You can get the counter at Design 215.


This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!

The police had called off the search as the fog thickened. We stayed, staring at
the bridge where we had seen her last. Why? Only silence.



141 
And here is my partner in crime from Mumbai!

We told them not to leave this gap. Now the drunk guy has driven straight through into the water; he thought it's a shortcut to the bridge.

Sad, but very well done.

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

We both seem to be thinking this way today. Sad thought Sylvia. Hoping you have a wonderful week ahead.

Peggy said...

Nice one Sylvia.

Good take on this weeks picture.
Life sure is sad sometimes and you nailed it!
Have a great week my friend!

Janie said...

Your story is haunting and memorable, like the foggy scene.

Pat said...

Oh, how sad, Sylvia, but a good psychological mystery. Have a wonderful week.

Jim said...

O, Sylvia. ;) This could get real sad!

I hope her body wasn't the one my guy Al threw in.

Well done, Sylvia!
A good match between the mood of the photo and the sadness in your lines!

Have a happy week****

A sad end with no answers.... :O(

A mystery waiting to be solved! Very sad!

Re your blog, I don't have trouble with comments, I just have trouble getting your blog to load! Often need to re-fresh a couple of times! But that's OK! I keep trying!

Dianne said...

that's a haunting one Sylvia
so much said in so few words

moondustwriter said...

Gosh the second suicide on MFM - that's a good bridge to stay clear of

Kay said...

Great take on this photo, Sylvia. Very tragic.

Mama Zen said...

How sad!

G-Man said...

Nice take Sylvia....

SandyCarlson said...

How sad--unless, of course, she is watching you from behind a tree!

nimaruichi said...

Some whys can haunt forever; nice take :)

Hi Sylvia--seems we both were melancholy with this week's picture....good one.
Have a great week. Cheers!

Michael G-G said...

Great one, Sylvia. A lot said in a few characters. Could be a great start to a novel!

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Michael G-G said...

O, and I LOVE your spring header!

KB said...

Aww, that's so sad. Have a wonderful week.

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

the first one is so sad, sob. The second one is pretty funny. Loved them both.

Rinkly Rimes said...

That's almost believably sad.

Vicki said...

Well done! With mine I was trying to stay away from the obvious. Thank you for the kind words.

This has a bridge in it and Linky is still open so guess where this is going?
;-D

Sad and beautifully done.

magiceye said...

wonderful as usual!!

great partners!!

izzy said...

Murder and mayhem ! but of course, nothing scarier than in fog- Thanks.

jabblog said...

The first one is so poignant. The second one had a nice touch of black humour to it. Have a good week, Sylvia :-)

Scott said...

hmmm, both so sad :-( appropriate to the photo to be sure!

5thsister said...

#1: Why indeed?
#2: Alcohol addiction can make one think crazy thoughts.

How sad. And it makes one pause and think. Good job.

Grandma's Goulash said...

Good ones. That photo has certainly elicited some sad stories.

Akelamalu said...

Sad ones today Sylvia but they both fit the picture perfectly.

Mama Badger said...

Oh, that is sad. But I always think there's hope if the person isn't found. Maybe she was saved by swans or something.

Madeleine said...

Great micros, though we are all thinking such morbid thoughts LOL! :O)

Nessa said...

Yours is a wonderful little mystery.

Your friend's is a cautionary tale.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Oh, so poignant and thought-provoking, too.

Ann said...

This looks like my water front last weekend. We had a gigantic storm, luckily not as big a flood as Australia.

Karen said...

Oh no! So sad & interesting that you both found drownings in your mMF. But, its a different take than I've read so far, kudos! :>

Susan Fobes said...

Sylvia, both of these were definitely on the dark side, but oh so good!

Susan Fobes said...

BTW, I really like your new header-the picture is so happy (I can't wait until spring!)

SparkleFarkle said...

Whoa! Tales From the Darkside, alright! (I can even hear its perfect-for-this-microfiction-image theme music playing in my head!) Especially "...the drunk guy has driven straight through into the water; he thought it's a shortcut to the bridge." All I can say is: GPSs: Stop the madness!!!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
