The twins never left their attic prison.  No one knew they existed so no one ever looked for them.  The school didn’t know about the school aged girls, so no truant officer ever came looking for them.  Their caretaker fed them and bathed them wearing a mask.

So how were these two girls able to tell each other fantastic stories? With their imagination and a view from an attic window of course that is how.  The latest story was about a gang of funny children living in bales of hay and traveling all over the countryside getting into mischief.  Future writers?


Submitted for Friday Fictioneers.  This is a fun writing prompt challenge.  Rochelle supplies a photograph to guide your writing and the word limit is 100.  Give it a try.

    Very ‘flowers in the attic’. Well done.


  3. Perhaps they could toss something out the attic window, be rescued, write a best-seller and be on all the talk shows. 🙂



  4. Good story with hope for the future. Well done. Maybe they could tie some things in the attic together to make a getaway rope. Attics are usually full of stuff.


  5. Will they be as twisted as the rest of us writers?


  6. Dear Maryann,

    I like Janet’s idea. Definitely talk show fodder. Good one.
