Fandango’s Story Starter #56

It’s time for my weekly Story Starter prompt. Here’s how it works. Every Tuesday morning (my time), I’m going to give you an incomplete “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that partial sentence. It doesn’t have to be the first sentence in your story, and you don’t even have to use it in your post at all if you don’t want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing.

If you care to write and post a story built from this teaser, be sure to link back to this post and to tag your post with #FSS. I would also encourage you to read and enjoy what your fellow bloggers do with their stories.

And most of all, have fun.

    She had been watching her neighbor’s house for weeks [that had turned into years], but she saw something today that made her…

    … ask what the colored light was that she saw through the side window when she was looking earlier. Her husband seemed to be suddenly discomforted in his lawn chair.

    I shared that I used to have a rainbow bulb in my lamp but decided upon one blue, one green, and one orange in the panel above the fireplace and blue in the lamp. No bothered feeling detected, he looked to each face in the summer circle of visiting neighbors and relaxed again.
