Twittering Tales #7 – 6 December 2016


About the challenge:  Each Tuesday I will provide a prompt, and your mission, if you choose to play along, is to tell a story based on that prompt in 140 characters or less.

If you accept the challenge, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing us a new prompt.

Have Fun! 🙂

Here are the results for Twittering Tales #6 based on this photograph from last week. We have some new folks joining the fun!


“Rosé” by cyclonebill from Copenhagen, Denmark at Wikimedia Commons.

*From Kiwinana (Elsie Hagley) from Ramblings of a Writer:

Sitting by the fire watching the glow on my nearly empty glass I clicked into wonderland sure I saw a fairy dancing in the red sea of glory.

*From Michael at

It can’t be a chardonnay, its red.

No it’s a new grape variety, red wine chardonnay.

Taste it and see.

Well its different.

Hmm you got any more?

*From Kathryn, anotherfoodieblogger:

I was offered a taste of new wine at the bar from a stranger. Little did I know it was a roofie, dammit! Where am I and where are my shoes?
(139 Characters)

*From Irena at Books and Hot Tea:

She poured him wine. Her glass was already full, with a liquid too dark and thick. He failed to notice that, or the fangs beneath her lips.
(139 characters)

*From Pat at Black Cat Alley:

A new wine, hailed as exceptional – raspberry sweet, peppery bite, bargain priced. Few tasted its dirtiness, the grapes stomped by goats. ©Pat Palazy/ wordwitch88@Black Cat Alley 2016∞

*My take:

After an hour Sue realized she’d been stood up. She ordered more wine, noticing an attractive stranger at the bar. “You’ll do,” she thought.
(140 Characters)

*And finally from Willowdot21 (I think she may have thought the challenge was 140 words, but I loved her story so much I can’t not include it in the roundup!)

The  light played upon  the  glass  reflecting  the  windows of  the bar.The  barman  watched  the  woman in  the  red  dress silently  fondling  her glass. Something about  her   grabbed  his  interest.

As  the  evening  progressed  he  found  he  was  becoming  obsessed with  her, her figure, her  hair, her  lips  and  her  eyes. She  was sex  personified  and  she  was making him hungry, he could  feel  her  body  calling  him,he  was  growing hard  and  so distracted.   It was  becoming  impossible  to  concentrate, all he could  see  was her breasts  rising  and  falling  as  she  breathed.

Eventually he  could  take  no more  he vaulted  the bar  and  made  straight  for her. As he  approached  she  turned  and  smiled  at  him her  eyes  like ice cooled pools .”Hi”he  said  “my  name is  Tom”, “Hello  sexy  mine name is  James” was  the husky  reply.

Thanks to everyone who played last week! If I somehow missed your entry, please let me know so I can add it to the roundup.

Twittering Tales #7 – 6 December 2016

He found the journal in her dresser. As he read the words she wrote about “him” his heart broke. He wondered, “Should I tell them I know?”
