Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #184

Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The image below is from the WordPress Free Photo Library.

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a woman lying on a sectional sofa draped by a large, bluish terrycloth towel or blanket that covers all of her body, including her head, except for her lower legs and feet.

If this week’s image inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post. I hope it will generate some great posts.

Please create a pingback to this post or manually add your link in the comments.

    Is this body (covered)
    (One in covered blue)
    Woman under cover?
    Or man beneath said blue?

    I been reading a book on How to Be An Amateur Detective Fan……

    Legs could be shaved male……..

    No nail polish suggests male……

    No telltale bumps suggest male……..

    I’ll now progress to Chapter 2 of my book. How to tell if it’s a gun or not……

      I see a bump and the shoulders
      And a bump at the hips
      Could it be guy? Sure
      My guess, it’s not.

        From my Chapter 1 Detective knowledge I spotted head/shoulder/hip bumps but no boob bump. Unless tinies enclosed in the folds? A good detective keeps an open mind the author says……..

    Sofa crashing is not new to me, either because the dog got me up, or the meds have taken hold and I’m too hot. As long as I can keep my legs and feet cool, the rest of the body adjusts.
    I think it’s a woman by the shape of the feet and hands, plus most guys I know who have slept on the couch sleep on their back and SNORE!

      I sleep on my side and my wife complains that I snore like a diesel truck.

      But that’s in bed, not on the couch.

    A starter to my story…

    I’ve always been a fan of the fairy tale ‘Goldilocks n the 3 🐻🐻🐻’, however saying that.. When I returned home earlier this evening, to find someone sleeping on my sofa, covered in my favorite blue towel – I’d have to say, it was a bit terrifying at first… It could be literally anyone.
    Any guesses.

    Hope to upload the story soon enough
