Submitted for Sunday Photo Fiction
The Assignment: The idea of Photo Fiction is write a story of around 100-200 words (which is also called Flash Fiction) based on a photo as a prompt. In this particular photo fiction, the story must be based on the photo below. This is a multiple part story. To follow the story, start with Part 1 and move onto Part 2. In part 1, unemployed George thought he was checking something major off his “Honey Do List” but alas calling a company seen on television resulted in lost family heirlooms and an angry wife. Worse yet, the company that cleared out the garage seems to have vanished. Next in part 2, when Karla called the television station for help in contacting the junk dealers, she found out they do not exist and the junk dealers that do not exist are hiding out in a closed antique shopping waiting for their boss. And now, the Diaries (Part 3).
After days with no progress, Karla accepted that she would never see the diaries again. It’s a part of her heritage that she would need to use other sources; however that is all it was so its time to put aside the anger and move on.
George received word that there may be work on the oil rigs so he went down to the harbor to put in an application. Arriving in the parking lot, he saw a truck that looked a lot like the one belonging to Junk Be Gone. Seeing a familiar man sitting in the cab, George approached and knocked on the window.
“What do you want?” asked Brock.
“Do you remember me? George Appleton, you cleared my garage a few days ago.”
“You have the wrong man. I don’t clear garages.”
“Sure you do. Where’s your partner? It is great that I found you because there was a family heirloom, some diaries that I need to get back. I’m in trouble with the wife if you know what I mean.”
Rolf came back from the harbor office and over heard the exchange. He came up behind George and put a gun to his back. “Get in.”
