Friday Fictioneers – Cold Callers

ff090714From around the corner came a man dressed in royal blue. Lifeless, red eyes at No. 39 widened behind net curtains, only to narrow as the man stopped and turned into No. 36.

Reaching a faded green door, the man in blue paused – a single finger ran down his clipboard.

Overhead angry clouds grumbled; heavy drops of rain began to fall. A flash of lightening streaked across the troubled sky.

The path to No. 36 now lay quiet; dark puddles formed in the empty street. The curtains at No. 39 fell still in despair – perhaps tomorrow would be their day.


These words form my entry into this week’s Friday Fictioneers photo prompt challenge.

    I’m worried for anyone who happens to call at no. 39 after reading this. Can’t decide if everyone needs rehousing – hence the clipboard – or it’s a street populated by vampires and the like. Suitably ambiguous. Well done.
