A fifty second story…

for Friday Fictioneers on a Wednesday which is hosted once again by Rochelle.




Apparently, there’s a heavenly view from up there.

I don’t trust steps, they’re always up to something!

Haha, very funny, not!

But there are one, two, three, da-da-da … eighteen of them.

That’s not many.

And they’re slippery.

Don’t worry, I’ll hold your hand!

No, you won’t!

Come on, it’ll be worth it.

Eddie Cochran said there are only Three Steps to Heaven, that’s all.

That was just a song.

According to that Miles Davis album, there are just Seven Steps to Heaven, eleven less than those.

Okay, there are some steps going down over there. Fancy those instead?

Hell, no!

    I definitely think I’d opt for going up, tiring though it may be. There’s a lot of pain to be had by coming down…

    They need to find one set of stairs and start from the top and the bottom towards each other, meeting half way

    Dear Keith,

    And sheeeee’s climbing the stairway to heaven. There. Got that out of my system. Love the banter and the last line.

    i guess heaven waits for those who lose their balance and fall. hopefully, not them this time around. 🙂

    Go for the view, I say. Heaven or Hell, it’s their choice. Laced with tongue in the cheek humour, loved it.

    Great last line, making me think that steps down lead to hell.

    It certainly looks inviting up there, and I think the steps themselves are rather lovely. Go for it!

    I get it. When in doubt, I always go with Miles.

    One’s the optimist and the other the pessimist. Shall the two minds ever meet? Funny but oh my the pessimist is irritating!

    Cleverly done! And I love the last line, it made me chuckle. As the song goes, the only way is up…
