Welcome to the Picture it & Write creative writing exercise. I invite people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (please provide a translation). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.
“Melissa! What happened? Are you ok?”
“No,” she sobbed. “Leave me, leave me, leave me.”
Liam felt up her legs for broken bones. Nothing looked twisted out at unnatural angles and there weren’t skid marks on the road. His original fear that she’d been hit by a car slowly abated but he couldn’t find any explanation as to why she was crumpled in the middle of the street.
“She’s dead,” Melissa whispered.
The words hardly registered as Liam scooped her up. Earbuds fell from Melissa’s ears and they could both here a female voice speaking in level tones.
Liam slid his arms under her and carried her to the grass by the road. “Melissa, talk to me. What happened? Are you ok? Who died?”
Melissa sobbed, “Rue. They killed her. Leave me so I can cry over the death of fictional characters.”
