WRITING PROMPT WEDNESDAY: 35 Word Photo Prompt Challenge

I have decided to try something different in 2023 and spend Wednesdays inviting others to enjoy a Writing Prompt either based on a photo or a word (or even something crazy, like the name of a recipe. Who knows what my mind will come up with?)

For this week’s Writing Prompt, please write a 35 word story based on this photo.

Post your story in the comment section here or follow me on Facebook at Raelyn Pracht, Author and post it there. Feel free to post a link to your blog if you would rather do that!

Here is my story:


Abandoned, but certainly not forgotten. The gift was anything but. The painted porcelain face and the humble clothes mask something sinister underneath.

Something which clings to the heartbeat of whoever possesses it.

Now, it waits.

    In one, he was a middle aged man in bed with the flu.

    In the other, he wasn’t.
