Mondays Finish the Story – October 26th, 2015

Welcome to Mondays Finish the Story!

Mondays Finish the StoryFirst I would like to thank everyone for their well wishes, loving prayers, and support for me as I venture down a road that involves the big “C.”  I have good news to report!  Both the oncologist and radiologist have determined that the size of the tumor in my lung has gone down, and I am definitely on the mend.  Also, I have stopped taking that pill which caused me to swell up, and that is slowly dissipating too!

Now on to this week’s challenge!

This is a unique flash fiction challenge where we provide you with a new photo each week, and the first sentence of a story. Your challenge is to finish the story using 100-150 words, not including the sentence provided. Don’t forget to use the opening sentence… This challenge runs from Monday to Sunday! Get creative and have fun finishing the story!

Please include the photo with your bit of flash and a link back to this post. Do not forget to click on the blue frog and add your link so that others can enjoy your story too! Now let’s have some fun!

  7. I watched the vulture looking at me hungrily as I lay on the ground bleeding and injured.

    The blur of my lost memory taunted me, flickering like the eyes of the avian spectre, in and out of my focus. And the million questions flooded in, with no real point to any of them. Why am I here? Where is “here?” Why is my leg broken? Why do I feel like I’ve been hit by several trucks? My breath came ragged, too hard, and frothed with tiny specks of red. Cough. Spit. I realized I had at least one cracked rib. I remembered the boot’s impact, but not the reason why. I remembered hitting my head on hard concrete.

    The sun was too hot, and I wasn’t thirsty enough. I knew I should feel hot, but instead I felt cold. I realized I should feel more pain, but instead I felt nothing. Eyes closed. It was pointless to open them, pointless to fight. I laughed, as consciousness faded.

    • Thank you for the story. The idea behind this is to post your story with the blue guy, include a link to my post which will automatically show me that you have posted a link to your story. All stories are pre-approved for content. Maybe next time you could try it that way… ^..^

  15. So glad to hear your positive news. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you vanquish the big C from your life. Stay strong!

    • It has been tough, and it is one full of lessons for me. Thank you for thinking of me and I will be strong! We are making a change next week. More “quick” news is coming.

    • AB – You will do just fine! I am sure of it. So here I am, in the easy chair. My magic wand is at the ready. Slowly I raise my right arm and the orchestra at your place sits at the ready. I clear my throat, and with my magic spell I tap 3 times on the music stand in front of me. With the wand, I draw a huge cursive L in the air, stopping at the left, which is when the wand draws my hand upward into 3 slow spirals. Swiftly the wand snaps back then forward. Inspiration and creativity are both on their to you.

    • Right now there are way too many pills. I went from two pills to a total of 17 per day, an inhaler, a liquid, and a numbing spray to ease the throat. Thank you for the wish! It will come to fruition! I will keep rocking. And, please you do so the same as well. 🙂
