Tuesday Tales – December 7, 2020- Picture Prompt

This week, the authors of Tuesday Tales are writing to a picture prompt. These posts are limited to 300 words.

Be sure to check out the other tales here.

Sophronia glanced around at their surroundings. “The place is a lot bigger than I realized. The sign says the office is closed on weekends. How will we find the grave we’re looking for without a site map?”

“We’ll just roam around. Start on one side and stroll around.” Alice touched Sophronia’s arm. “If you can walk that much.”

“Walking is much easier than sitting at this point in my life.”

“Watch out for tree roots. I see a lot of oaks out here.”

“Lord knows I can’t afford to fall again.”

“You didn’t fall in the first place, doll. Remember, you were shoved by a greedy, nasty woman.”

Sophronia laughed as she stepped through the open gates. “Tell me how you really feel.”

“I really feel like I want to karate chop her into next week.” She pointed to her right. “Let’s go this way first.”

“I’ll follow you and take the next row up.” As she uttered the words, a cool breeze wafted over her. “Wait a sec.”

Alice turned, concern etched on her face. “Are you hurting, are you in pain, do we need to get you home?”

“No, no, and no. I’ve been overtaken with a strong urge to go in that direction.” She tilted her head toward the left back area of the cemetery. An overpowering sense of being right led her to quicken her pace. The urgency sent her almost flying over a tree stump.

“Slow down, Soph. You’re going to break more than a tailbone if you don’t watch where you’re going.”

  1. “Karate chop her into next week.” Love it. I can almost imagine her doing it. Great job.

    • Thanks.  Glad you liked it.  🙂 

  2. Wow! I can’t wait to see what she’s going to find out. Is it a special grave, or is there a ghost there? An image, a something. Very exciting. Love this.

    • Thanks Jean. I was hoping it was coming across like I wanted it to.  🙂 

  3. The idea she sensed that part of the graveyard intrigues me and creeps me out at the same time. And I want to punch whoever hurt her. Great job!

    • thanks Tricia!  LOL! on the punching!! Glad you were creeped out. That was my goal.  🙂

  4. I love the way you describe things and how she is following her strong intuition. Wanting more!

    • Thanks Flossie. I’m loving working on this story. I’m glad you want more. And the compliment about descriptions means a lot since you’re so awesome with descriptions yourself.

  5. I love this scene! Of course, I’m partial to graveyards and cemeteries.
    Funny, in the scene I scheduled a few hours ago for tomorrow’s Tuesday Tales I used a cemetery picture too.

    • thanks! I also love graveyards and cemeteries. Can’t wait to read yours!
