Welcome to #TellTaleThursday! We (Anshu & I) are super excited to present the first ever TTT prompt. Today we present a picture prompt to stir your imagination.
The rules are simple:
Use the picture prompt given below, weave a story, and add the linky. Have fun!
The ‘city of canals’ looked beautiful at twilight. The rich mauve enveloped the canals, and the water reflected the color back. The hues had their own story to tell, but Alice’s heart was too burdened to enjoy the nature’s spread. The purple sky looked complex and ominous. She wanted to paint it back to the way it was – predictable cerulean. Sitting by the window, she longed for Alessandro. “Where is he?” She sighed.
It had been a year since she last saw him, he looked dashing in uniform. Looking at her tearful eyes, he had asked, “what is so special about me?” She had replied “Everything”. He had promised he would be back soon, “as soon as the war ends.”
Her heart wove a myriad of dreams every day, all with a happy ending. She had grown up with him and wished to grow old with him. Usually happy and love-filled heart was aching today. It wasn’t that it hadn’t ached before, it hadn’t pained the way it did today. She feared the appalling news that the sky wanted to break. The breeze grew stronger and she knew that the storm was coming. She cursed the alluring harbinger and prayed silently.
