Blurred #3LineTales

I took my new camera to the beach on Sunday and took some photos. They looked fine on the viewing screen but later, on my laptop screen, I noticed that some of them hadn’t come out right. The people were blurred like ghosts, I was disappointed but I did like the effect.

Lil Bot #3LineTales

three line tales, week 129: a friendly robot – or is he up to something sinister?

The bot was there again at the end of my bed, watching over me with empty eyes, only I knew that wasn’t true now, it had been recording everything and feeding my life back to the government.

The bot give me its normal, ‘good morning, did you sleep well? What can I get for you today?’ speech and I replied with my normal, ‘morning, thank you I did, any messages?’

The bot give me one messaged then wheeled away to see to breakfast and whilst it’s back was turned, I pulled out the gun and shot it through the head.

Tall Ships #3LineTales

three line tales, week 126: a tall ship on the liffey at sunrise

It had been a close call but everyone had made it into the dock before darkness had fallen. Martin looked at the map again and realized that he hadn’t been wrong after all, the height of the bridge was labeled wrong. It was higher by a meter in real life then the little drawing said, thank God it wasn’t a meter lower or none of the tall ships would have got in, he thought, I’ll change it and then let whoever published this map know tomorrow.

Mission #3LineTales

three line tales, week 124: two colourful doors that lead to ...

The doors didn’t seem real but she knew they were, for they had house numbers on them and real steps leading up to them, though no else seemed to see them.

She knew that what was behind the doors though were not normal houses but passageways to two different countries not marked on any maps and she had visited both countries now often enough.

Today however, was different, she had a mission to try and complete; the uniting of the two places through a royal marriage and that if everything went perfectly, would stop the thousand year of war between the two countries.

Reflection #3LineTales

three line tales, week 123: a strange reflection in a puddle

I glanced down at the puddle I had been about to step into and saw the reflections of a plane above and two skyscrapers.

I raised my head and looked about confused because there were no tower blocks beside or in front of me, just some shabby looking houses.

Perhaps it was one of those city street 3D paintings and not a real puddle but as I stepped over it, I felt something pull me back and before I knew it I had fallen into another world were everything was so very different from the one I’d left.

Postcard #46 #3LineTales

three line tales, week 122: a canal, boats and colourful houses

Saluti from sunny Italy or not as it’s raining for the first time since we’ve arrived, though  I don’t mind as it takes off some of the heat.

It’s really nice and so calming, next to the narrow canals and boats, which has been great for my stress, though I can do without the singing that the boat driver sometimes break out into!

We made the right choice moving here, though I knew it still pains you, but I do hope you’ll visit sometime and perhaps you’ll fall in love with this country as we have done.

Ciao!

Yes #3linetales

three line tales, week 121: together for yes

The nightclub was called Yes and I wasn’t sure why but the story of having to say ‘yes’ to everything that my best friend spun was wrong.

I mean, I was fine with strange men buying me drinks on my big three-one birthday but I wasn’t about to let any of them take me back to their beds!

I knew how to have a good time but not to over do it, as we left I decided that Yes wasn’t really my scene, Satan’s Halo was more my place and the men were much more to my taste there.

Rainbow Rocks #3linetales

tltweek119

It was properly just some bored artist seeking attention but the painted rocks on the beach were attracting a lot of the public to the area.

For weeks now, people had been swarming around the towering sculptures, marveling at all the colors then spending their money in Molly’s cafe which was handy for her, as Molly’s business hadn’t been doing that great.

When anybody asked her about the rainbow rocks, Molly would smile brightly and say, ‘I know nothing about them but aren’t they great?’ Secretly, she thought them a terrible mark on the nice beach, but if it brought the customers in she couldn’t complain that much.

Puffins #3LineTales

three line tales week 111: two puffins ; ireland st patrick's day

The sea roared in my ears, the tide was coming back in. I lent out over the edge of the cliff, camera ready to snap whatever was down there. I took a few photos blindly then the puffins flew up into my face, defending their nests and forcing me away.
