Microfiction challenge #4: At the window

The full title of this painting by Munch is The kiss at the window, but it doesn’t have to be a kiss. The blue light is eerie, his embrace could be passionate or violent, and is she wilting with pleasure, or with terror? There are a lot of possible interpretations. Find one and write it.

This week, there’s a choice. Phylor reminded me that sometimes a story can run to several episodes, so if you want to make the story prompted by this image the start of a mini serial, keep it to less than 200 words, with a beginning, a middle, and an open end, and tag it Part One. You’ll then have the option of using next week’s image to inspire part two. If you intend to close the story this week, use as many words as you like. However, if you write a novel, I don’t guarantee I’ll have the time to read it 🙂

Post the link to your story in the comments before next Thursday to be included in the round up. Have fun!
