Moonlight Getaway

Moonlight Getaway

Photo Prompt: Ted Strutz


A full moon hung on the edge of the horizon. Only a few more hours of twilight; they should hurry. The fugitives boarded the boat already packed with supplies. They would be a million miles away before they needed more.

As Mark pushed the boat away from the docks, police sirens blared in the distance. Lisa’s heart pounded, not from fear but from the arousal that came from being with a dangerous man.

She was his Bonnie; he was her Clyde.

As the sirens passed, Lisa relaxed. It would be days before they found the bodies.

Friday Fictioneer’s is a weekly challenge to write a complete story in 100 words or less based on a photo prompt. Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting this challenge and Ted Strutz for this week’s prompt.

  1. OMG, They killed Mark’s wife? No. And she was such a nice woman.
    I wonder what’s going to happen in the next episode of Moonlight Getaway.
    Will they have left telltale signs at the murder sight? Will something go wrong with their ship?
    Will their pangs of guilt, as you wrote above, deeply affect their relationship and lives?

    When you post the next installment? Movie offers yet?

    Ha. Randy

    1. Initially it was. I changed at the end but may have not checked for continuity. Or maybe it was Mark’s wife and her Austrian lover???
