Alastair’s Photo Fiction – Georgie

This prompt was taken from Alastair’s Photo Fiction Blog.

Harry saw a woman totter along the platform in black stilettos. Her attire, a well cut jacket and a pencil skirt, suggested she’d just left the office for the day. The way she staggered around suggested she’d actually just been chucked out of the nearest bar.

 “Fuck!” she proclaimed loudly. “Where the fuck did he go?”

She stumbled back the way she came before reappearing again a few minutes later.

 “Excuse me!” she called out to Harry. “Have you seen my pet?”

 “What does your pet look like?” asked Harry, nervously.  The woman laughed.

 “You’d know him if you saw him.” She glanced over Harry’s shoulder and broke into a grin. “Georgieeeee!”

Harry turned and got the shock of his life. Bounding down the platform was a reptilian creature the size of a small child. The thing ran on its hind legs, but jumped up to give its master a bear hug around the waist.

“Georgie! Never run away like that again!”

  1. Loved that 😀 Can almost see it. I think the next time I am in London and in these tunnels, all of these stories will come to mind 🙂

    Thank you for once again participating

  2. Ah, I was in London just two weeks ago. Was pretty great, didn’t see any big lizards though. I can imagine that the current heat wave makes for good lizard breeding grounds — perhaps Georgie found others of his own kind and was lured away momentarily?

    Love the contrast in the opening paragraph.
