Midweek writing prompt – an intrusion

Lake, Madeira cr judy DarleyImagine this – it’s a hot, beautiful day. Your protagonist has a day of tranquil indolence planned, and sneaks to the grounds of an abandoned stately home where they know there is an ornamental lake just perfect for whiling away a few quiet hours in.

But when they arrive they discover that someone else is already there.

Who is this person? Are they allowed to be there, or are they trespassing like your protagonist? Does your protagonist dare approach them, or do they simply hide in the shadows and watch?

What happens next?

If you write something prompted by this idea, I’d love to know. Just send an email to Judy(at)socket creative.com. With your permission, I’d love to publish it on SkyLightRain.com.
