55 Word Challenge: Week Forty-Four

55 Word Challenge
Week Forty-Four

Welcome back to #55WordChallenge!
For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and I have been blown away by some of the entries. See for yourself, all the past contests can be found here. (List has been updated)
The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts and can be written in any genre you choose. My only request is no porn. I don't want to hear graphic details. If it is erotic, make it titillating, not obscene. I know that can be done and done well.

The story is to be posted in the comment section below, along with your twitter handle or email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner. If you don't want to list your email address, send it to me at I promise I won't distribute it, but if you are the winner I need a way to notify you and to send you your prize.

And what does the winner get? This purty badge for one. This week I have a special prize, thanks to a donation by @HLPauff. He deferred his prize two weeks ago and said to put it back in the pot. So I have decided to offer all three books by Timothy Hobbs as the prize package. I am really excited because I love Tim's writing and I think you will too. You can read more about him below. 
If anyone is interested in contributing a prize, a book, cover art, whatever you want, let me know and we will work something out. If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!

Photo Prompt:

Timothy C. Hobbs was born in Temple, Texas. His older brother was a lover of horror movies and literature. Tim naturally followed his brother's lead and was seduced by all things that go bump in the night. Tim started writing horror stories in the sixth grade and has never stopped since.

His books, Music Box Sonata and The Smell of Ginger, are published through Visionary Press Cooperative. A third novel, The Pumpkin Seed, will be released sometime in the near future.

Timothy also writes for Minor Insanity.
