Full Moon – Sunday Photo Fiction

AnElephantCant just knock up a story
Except when a friend asks him to do it
This may be quite obscure
But he is pretty sure
That both his smart readers will quickly see through it

This is a weekly invitation to write a short piece of fiction (c. 150 words) based on a photo prompt (below) provided by Alastair.
Please click on the link to view a star-filled galaxy of night-time narrations by melancholy moon-gazers.
But please first read AnElephant’s laughable lunacy.

Full Moon

He parks by the river and enters the café by the back door.
Hi Des, he says to the waitress.
My name is Danielle, she replies, can I get you something?
Orange juice, please.
Certainly, sir.
Have you never been called Des before?
Only by my friends, she snaps.
When I first called you that I told you I wished I was 25 years younger. Now I am.
What?
I found a time machine, travelled back 25 years and sent myself here for you!
She calls to her colleague.
Becks, this weirdo is really creeping me out! Is it a full moon again?

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. http://anelephantcant.me/

    He simply chose a bad time.

  4. JED says:

    If your future self came back in time and told you what to do would you do it? That sounds like an interesting scenario.

    He should have put a bit more thought into it, time travel’s a young man’s game ;)

  6. He should have gotten her to write a note to herself to certify his identity. :) Time travel can really help a love life along.

  7. Al says:

    Haha silly sod. She has no clue who he is. :-) He went back in time, not made himself younger

Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
