Title: Safety First

“Jonathon, look. He has little pictures back here.” Roxanne dragged her gaze over each little beauty. Strong arms wrapped around her and Jonathon snuggled close. His public displays of affection were just one of the many reasons she loved about him.


She swayed as warmth spread through her limbs. In such a short time, Jonathon had become a life necessity. She could no longer imagine life without him.

“Is it odd that the photographer has captured so many of the places we’ve been?”

Jonathon stilled.

“What is it, honey?”

“It is strange and I’m not sure what to make of it.” He looked towards the back of the shop. The door opened to a little room, but no door, just a barred window.

“You’re starting to scare me. What’s going on?” She pulled at his arms and finally grabbed hold of his chin. “Jonathon?”

“I think we should leave as quietly as we came in. No eye contact with the clerk, okay?”

“Fine, but then you need to tell me what’s going on.”

He leaned in and gave her sweet chasted kiss. “Fine, I just want you safe first.”

  1. More! I want more than that tantalising glimpse. Totally intrigued. Great piece and use of prompts!

    1. Wahoo! I'm so glad you liked. This is actually the 6th piece in my Roxanne and Jonathon love story. I've gotten all my inspiration right here too. Love Daily Picspiration. :D

  2. This was a great flash! The shop owner definitely scared Jonathon enough for them to get out of the store. I don't know why but this story reminds of The Pawnbroker.
