AnElephantCant contain his enthusiasm
Rochelle uses his pic and covers him in glory
So if he is to succeed
All that he now needs
Is to come up with an appropriate story
Hooray, it is Friday Fictioneer time!
The wonderful Rochelle has chosen a snap by AnElephant as this week’s prompt.
He is honoured.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
Grandma, why do you have that picture of an old bicycle by your bed?
Ah, cheri, that was once the most famous bicycle in France!
That old wreck! Why, grandma?
That was the bicycle your grandfather rode during the war.
And that made it famous?
No, it was what he did that made it famous.
What did he do?
He ignored the shells and bullets, rode unarmed to the wounded in no-man’s land, put them on the bike, and wheeled them to safety.
He was a hero!
Yes, but he raised our men’s morale so the enemy just shot him.
