Dropping her line into Fool’s Lake, Adela patiently waited for something to bite, but the bait she was using wasn’t interesting the fish. Her patience was getting thin and she was feeling very close to giving up when she remembered what Hank told her,

“They will bite, just be patient. Remember, they will test you first.” .

“If I could just get a nibble, all I need is a nibble.She thought to herself.

It was getting late in the evening and her frustration was mounting.

“Hank’s going to kill me. He wanted to reel in at least one John tonight.”

Just then the bartender winked at her and sat her drink down in front of her,

“Want to meet me in my room after I get off of work for a fifty?”

Adela winked back and set her hook. (130 words)

Monday’s Finish the Story

  1. I had to re read it twice after reading the comments since most people seemed to think she was a prostitute and I was one of those people too lol but it was a pretty awesome twist. The photo tricked me into thinking she was actually fishing next to the lake, great job! πŸ˜€

    • Yes, that photo was our prompt photo. We can write what we want just as long as it makes some sort of reference to the photo. You were right, she was a prostitute (but really a police woman undercover). Unfortunately I had only 100-150 words and didn’t get that across well enough.

  2. Interesting take on the prompt. I see from the comments that the twist is not quite as I thought it to be, though I think it works well however you read it. πŸ™‚

  3. What a different and creative way to use the prompt, Joy. Looks like she’s going to reel in a fish after all. That is if he isn’t an undercover policeman..Well done. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

I would love to read your thoughts...
