Bemused – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction Photo Prompt

It’s the summer holidays and I’m counting down the days until my little darlings go back to school. I’ve got about fifteen minutes before I’m interrupted again, so here is this weeks attempt at the Friday Fictioneers flash fiction photo prompt. Thank you as always to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for being our host. When I looked at this beautiful photo I was flooded with a number of ideas. But one held it’s ground. The idea that artistic people in the past used to believe they had a Muse. If muses were with us today what would they say? What would your Muse say about you ?

‘A onesie.’

‘That’s awful.’ He nods.

‘She’s blocking me. The book of face has won.’

Isobel gasps, ‘say it’s not so brother!’

‘I have failed.’

‘No! She must finish the series, I have to know if Julia chooses Mark or Luke!’

‘Will you help me?’

‘Of course I will. You know I love a challenge.’
