Once again, I am participating in Rochelle Wisoff-Fields flash fiction challenge Friday Fictioneers. This challenge requires the writer to come up with a story that has a beginning, middle and end that goes along with the photo prompt. The word count: 100 or less. Today’s photo is by Marie Gail Stratford. Are you ready for my story?
Taking a sip of red wine from his glass, Bacchus looked over its rim adoringly at Diana. She ignored him as she always did. He was already in his cups.
“Diana, my love, come hither! Lay your ruby lips on mine,” he said, leaning forward and puckering.
“Get away from me you lush!” she replied pushing him away.
Bacchus stumbled away, and walked down the lane with the glass in one hand, the bottle in the other. Stopping near a pile of clear quartz, he accidentally spilled his wine staining the quartz forever.
This is how amethyst got its color.
