Microfiction Monday #54 & #8

It's Microfiction Monday once more. Here's the photo:


And here's mine:

It was the longest of summers.
The summer that would change everything.
The summer that would change who they were.
Except for one of them.

Here's the eighth, here's the photo:


Here's my response:

Lily was starting to wonder whether this baptism thing was really worth all the hassle.

Ah, and there were summers that did indeed change things for many at one time or another. Great MM for the day, Dave! Hope you have a great week!

Dang! That's good.

Summers were always a time for 'moving on', and change, whether abodes or partners.

And that "baptism" thing--aside from the fact it took you nearly 45 weeks to write--is REALLY very good. thanks!

You've got my attention. What happens next?

gospelwriter said...

ooh, I wonder which one, and why? I like it.

You've left me wondering about the unchanged one! They all look as though they could do with a transformation!

Got a laugh out of me on the baptism one, that's for sure.

I loved both offerings today - aren't you the clever one at getting the most from the least? :)

Diane said...

Ohhhhh.... which one, hmmmmmmm..... :O)

hope said...

Ah clever....you know we're going to drive you crazy asking which one, right? :)

I love a microfiction that makes me wonder about the figures in the picture and their future. Well done!

Enjoyed your story this week. Cheers!

Now I can't wait to find out about this summer they're having!

Funny enough, Lily is that washer-girl's middle name. Hmm!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Terrific! It sounds like the back jacket of a book. Nice hook. There is a lot of intrigue simmering there.

The second one is funny - I can't decide if she's climbing in or climbing out!

Send Lily my best.

Thank you all again for reading.
