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.
Two girls walk around the neighborhood at night. A man steps around the corner.
Threat detected! Threat detected! One of the girls goes on high alert. The hairs on her arms stand up straight and she moves her hand to the gun concealed in her hoodie.
The second girl sees the same man, but it takes her several seconds longer. She straightens and smiles. Do you have a puppy?
Everyone is welcome to use the button, just link them back to the Picture it & Write category or Ermiliablog! Share your love for Picture it & write on your blog with the image below. Be proud, and stylish !

Somehow that second girl’s reaction fills me with terror. There’s nothing more frightening than someone who walks right into danger innocently. Nice contrast.
Thank you OnChi.

The second girl’s reaction worries me. 😮
I’m really enjoying writing two perspectives. Wish I’d been able to get it into a haiku so next time I’ll try to write it with more lead time.

Life could be seen in only one window of the apartments here at 3:46 AM. Through the blinds, sitting up in his bed and staring at the blank wall sat Trey, unable to sleep. Trey had recently moved to the city from his small country hometown with dreams of becoming somebody. Now that he was here, all he wanted were his dreams back. On his first night he discovered there was no such thing as silence and always someone was smashing a trash can lid or honking a car horn. His neighbors coughed loudly or fell asleep with their television on. His own refrigerator sounded like a dragon with breathing problems. There was no end to the noise.
“Be careful what you wish for” seems to ring particularly true here. Or the old curse, “May you live in interesting times and may you find what you are looking for.”

I got quite sick after posting this and I’m just now getting back on my feet. To be honest, this is the first day in over a week that I’ve sat up for 4 hours straight, long enough to write two book reviews and go through a handful of replies. For those I haven’t gotten to yet, I apologize. It’s about to be my turn again since Ermisenda so kindly covered for me last week. I know I’m doing you a disservice not reading through all of the comments this week, but if you return for the next prompt I will do my absolute best to read and respond to all contributors.
