Taboos – a Three Line Tale #Flashfiction

In my previous post, I said I would try my hand at more flash fiction and writing prompts so here’s my take on the following.

I introduce you to Sonya’s Three Line Tales (for future reference: TLT). The rules are simple: one photo, three lines.

Like I said, this post is part of Sonya’s 3LinesTales. You can find the original prompt here and take on the challenge yourself. I read some really great entries including this one by Shaun over at Clockwork Clouds



Thanks for reading.

    Good stuff :)
