Finish the story begins with:  “Dropping her line into Fool’s Lake, she patiently waited for something to bite.”

While waiting for the big bite, Carol’s mind started whirling around like a huge nearing thunder-storm. She could not think that she, one day would stand here trying to catch something in Fool’s Lake.  

Why would it happen to her? She grew up in a loving protective home. She met this gorgeous hunk two months back. Everything went well.  Everything was perfect. Love, moonshine and roses till two days ago.He just got abusive, he started treating her like a piece of trash. He kicked her out like dirt.

Carol had to catch something otherwise she would die from hunger.

No wonder the lake is called Fool’s Lake. Only fool’s could survive here.There is nothing nearby to help her…

  1. Dropping her line into Fool’s Lake, she patiently waited for something to bite.

    Fool’s Lake in Foolish Garden in a Fool’s Paradise. A fool hoping to catch what? Another fool? Doomed to spend to eternity as a fool? That would the ultimate foolishness. She be damned to be a fool for the rest of her life.

    This foolishness will end right here and right know. She tossed the line disgustingly into the lake and turned away.
    In order to stop being a fool, she had to stop being foolish. Damned be foolish pride.

    She will take her life in her own hands and live it to her expectations. After all, she had to live with herself. And it will be on her terms.


    1. Gee maar jy is oulik. Gooi die storie in die rooi taal. Fool’s Lake het ook my aandag getrek. Spoggerig!


  2. That’s a very interesting twist to the prompt. I loved how she was still looking for help (outside of herself) in the last sentence. Maybe that is one thing against being raised “overly protected,” you always feel the need to have some one take care of you and protect you. ? Just a thought. Good story!


    1. Now you are touching a soft spot in my up bringing. My father was overly protective. I still feel that I need someone to tell me what to do! That’s maybe why I got the idea of reaching out! Thanks for your comment I appreciate it

      1. Take your time, think about the photo and the opening line. Metaphor works really well with this challenge!

        Have to tell you, we have a cat named Scrappy, and we sometimes call him Scrappydo! I think of him when I see your posts and comments. ^..^ Check out the post on Scrappy at:

        And when we adopted him officially:


    1. Die Ingels moet ook beoefen word! Ek kom agter as ek so baie in Afrikaans dink en lees verswak my engels vinnig!He he. Bly mos in n Ingelse land. Interessant dat die ouens hier nie kan glo dat ek in Afrikaans lees nie. Hul idee is mos ‘Engels, Engels alles wat jy sien en hoor”
