Twittering Tales #139 – 4 June 2019

It’s time again, for Kat Myrman’s wonderful challenge, to write a story, inspired by her picture prompt, in 280 characters or fewer.

Here is this week’s prompt and my contribution.

Check out all the fabulously creative entries here and, if you’ve never had a go, why not try a story of your own? You may surprise yourself!

46 to choose from. Therein lay the clue to the lost treasure!
It was all there in the Last Will and Testament of old Aunt Agatha.
She’d written that, in these books, I would find a wealth beyond measure.
Only after finishing “The Great Hunt” did I get it.
Reading was the treasure!

(277 characters)

[How many of you counted the books?]

  1. Ahh a good book is indeed a treasure! I should make time to read more. Your tale reminds me of a book I read, written by an author who used to come into the post office where I used to work. I won’t spoil the story in case you ever read it, but his name is R J Ellory & it’s a thriller called “Ghostheart” most enjoyable. I didn’t count the books, but I did zoom in to see if I owned or had read any of them.. I didn’t & I haven’t!
