Tuesday – Anything Possible – Kreative Kue #107 by Keith Channing

I love prompts and will let Keith Channing tell you in his words about this one. “Using this photo(below) as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; and either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at keithkreates@channing.fr before 6pm next Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you). If you post it on your own blog or site, a link to this page would be appreciated, but please do also mention it in a comment here – pingbacks don’t often work.

Go on. You know you want to. Let your creativity and imagination soar. I shall display the entries, with links to your own blog or web site, next Monday.”

Kreative Kue #107

Come up by John W. Howell © 2016

“I would love to see you again.”

“I would too. This was fun.”

“I think it ‘d be terrific if we went out to dinner.”

“Oh, that would be great although this coffee shop is nice too.”

“I know it’s just I would like to treat you to something special.”

“Do you have a place in mind?”

“What kind of food do you like.”

“I like most everything.”

“Do you like Thai food.”

“Um. Not my favorite.”

“How about Italian?”

“I’m on a diet.”

“German?”

“Too heavy.”

“Japanese food. How about Japanese?”

“I have a seafood allergy.”

“Er, maybe Chinese?”

“Rice is not an approved item.”

“Gee I’ve run out of ideas.”

“Wait. I have an idea.”

“Thank heavens. I’m about ready to give up.”

“Why don’t you come over to my house and I’ll make you dinner?”

“Aw. That will be too much trouble.”

“Not at all. I will enjoy it. Here are the directions. You can’t miss it.”

“What time should I be there?”

“How about six o’clock and we can have a drink first.”

“Sounds swell. What can I bring.”

“Oh, nothing. I should mention though I live at the top of a pretty long stairway. You might find it uncomfortable.”

“Nonsense. There are no stairs that I can’t handle. See you then.”

    Amazing, LOL…dinner? Great writing, John. I was imagining the temple that must be tucked into the side of the mountain, which I would surely climb steps to see. Dinner?? You’ve got an amazing imagination! 🙂

  5. So, what can he eat? At least the stairs count as exercise, especially if one has a habit of forgetting their keys.

  6. I loved this one, John! With my fear of heights, I’d have to suggest we meet at the bottom. Great job!

  7. That drink before dinner better be the only one. Navigating the way back down could be an adventure otherwise.

    1. If he even gets up there. I was imagining him standing at the bottom and going, “no way.”
