Microfiction challenge Abandon: the entries

Sorry to be brief today but I have a migraine and feel shitty. Thank you, arrogant, air-brained little bastards of business school students opposite who take over the public space to throw their incessant all-night parties.

Please look in on the stories. They are all well worth reading. New prompt tomorrow.

Microfiction challenge #12: Abandon

The image this week is by Henri Rousseau, not one of his tropical paintings, one much closer to home. The rain is pouring down onto a verdant countryside and a water mill. The forest of pines doesn’t look too friendly to me and the place looks deserted. Why is the woman in black making her way to the mill? Does she live there? Maybe she lives in the house with the red roof, and she is on her way to a secret rendez-vous.

Write a short story using the image as inspiration, and the theme word

Abandon

Try to keep it to 200 words if possible, and post the link in the comments before next Thursday. Happy writing!
