Midweek writing prompt – the end of summer

Tunisia cr JudyDarleyAs we reach the official end of the UK summer, here’s a dark holiday #writingprompt for you.

A couple are staying in a luxury hotel in Tunisia. Early one morning, the woman, or the man (or perhaps they’re a same sex couple – it’s your choice) wakes before their lover and meanders outside for a wander. But they’ve only just set foot on the tile path that leads to the private beach when they hear a hubbub break out just out of sight ahead.

Do they dare investigate? What do they find themselves caught up in? How is the situation resolved? And how does this impact on the half of the couple still in bed?

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