A 200 word story

Sunday Photo Fiction



Hey Peggy, guess what!  Well, Jacky from number 582, saw her from 595 sneaking into number 593. There’s obviously something going on. Annie from 610 agrees. Trotting up the road before 593’s wife is barely out of sight isn’t on, is it?

Look, there’s Janet from number 618 – Janet, come here dear, you’ll be interested in this. When I was hanging out my washing I noticed the shed at 597 rocking. I guessed what was happening.  Luckily I had my binoculars with me so I peeped through the window. It was quite steamed up, but guess who’s grinning face I saw? Her, yes her from 595, the woman Jacky from 582 saw going into 593.

I’ll warn the newly-wed at 601 to watch her hubby with that Jezebel on the loose. Also 547.  Her husband’s got a bit of a roving eye.

Janet, watch your Richard too. I wasn’t going to say anything, but Saturday he goosed me in the shop. Goosed me dear, pinched my bottom. Janet where are you going….oh well.

Shhh, change the subject, it’s her from 592. Hello dear – I say, did you hear what happened in your neighbour’s house the other day?

    This is great fun! It’s probably not that far from the truth, either, when it comes to gossiping!

    You think you live in quite neighborhood… then you get one busy body with binoculars and the next thing you know there are police cars with sirens blaring in the night… with headline news the next day of some sort of ‘sting’.

    I like how you ‘addressed’ the situation 😉
