Twittering Tales #12 – 10 January 2017

About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a prompt photo, and your mission 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 is the roundup based on last week’s photo:

Starting us off, a little romance and mystery from Michael at Morpethroad:

Hold on I’ll warm you.

Glad I wore my boots.

Nearly there.

I’m so tired.

I’ll carry you?

exchange of vows and rings
Now they’re coupled
together in every sense
Her heart and legs run
wild, melting for him

From Pat at Black Cat Alley a tale that is out of this world!

Look at this sunset I dare you not to smile

Lady Lee Manila took the alien theme to the next level!
