I really liked Angela’s VisDare photo prompt this week, but I couldn’t get a story from it until now.

Busman’s Holiday (123 words)

Denise and Jackie stood on the beach watching Stan struggle.

‘Does he know what he looks like?’

‘He’s an artist. Does he care?’

Jackie cast a worried look at her friend. ‘How‘s he going to balance that frame and take the photo. Aren’t we supposed to help?’

‘That was his idea but, by the time he’s waded to the perfect spot, wiggled and jiggled to capture the best view, I doubt he’ll be able to spot us amongst all the other sunbathers.’

‘You’re awful.’

‘A complete bitch. Or just the girlfriend who’s mightily sick of being dogsbody to someone lacking all talent except an overinflated ego.’

‘Isn’t Tate St. Ives around here somewhere?’

‘Great idea. Let’s go and look at some proper art.’

  1. LOL!!! Looks like Stan is about to get his comeuppance by being bus-left by the (soon to be ex?)-girlfriend. So cheeky and clipped. Love this!

    • Thanks, Angela. I wasn’t sure about this at at all, but cheeky and clipped sounds good to me.
