Microfiction Monday

Susan has given us a good one this week!  It's easy to play -- just look at the illustration provided, and make up a story of 140 characters or fewer. The 140 includes all punctuation and spaces, so don't cheat!  After you publish your story, go back to link to Susan's place, Stony River.



Chloe watched the time tick away. Were they one step closer to destruction or ultimate joy? Only the thief in the night knew.

If you don't understand the allusion, look at 1 Thessalonians 5:2

If you don't have a Bible, use www.BibleGateway.com and put in the reference.

If you still don't understand it, feel free to e-mail me and I'll explain!

I blame a lot on that thief in the night fella.
Good one, I sure hope it's ultimate joy!

Time is a thief in the night or the day!

I tend to agree with Jinksy, time is a thief -- night or day! Great take on the pic of the day! Hope your week goes well!

I vote for you--but it's certainly ambiguous. I'm afraid most readers of the Thessalonian's text would lean towards destruction. But no Biblical scholar I. All I can say is that it was a darn good microfiction.

Have a great week.

I meant to say "I vote for JOY." (I vote for you too, but it's late here and I have Monday-fried-brain syndrome...)

Ultimate joy, please.

What? What thief in the night? What dastardly thief? I want to know more, more. Great post.
