Sunday Photo Fiction – 1 December

Sunday is the beginning of another weekly invitation from Alastair to open our imagination and tell the world what we see in his photo prompt. There is always several rich stories that flow from this interesting photographic offering. If you fancy a short adventure add your 200 words or less and join the fray.

“THAT is not what I ordered!” the father huffed, alternatively folding his arms and throwing his hands over his head as he ranted about how this object was nothing like he had in mind.

“Okay, let me read the description on the purchase order,” the old sculptor said as he retrieved his coke bottle thick glasses. “Customer wants a regal looking feline creature that will be used to delight his progeny for years to come.”

“Let me see that,” the man demanded.

“That is not what it says. This is what it says: “Customer desires a cuddly cat or kitten statue to place in his child’s room. Object should not be very large so it can be easily moved as the child’s living accommodations change.”

“So I paraphrased a bit,” the old man said shaking his head.

“This abomination will give my little girl nightmares!”

“All children grow up sometime,” the sculptor replied, wanting to be done with this discussion.
