I chose the image of the Cornwall coast for my twenty-minute sprint this week. I’m returning to Kyran and Neal, who I created for Image Prompt 23, just to explore that snippet a bit further. I’ve been reading back through some of my old Image Prompt responses lately and finding interesting kernels to continue exploring.
Kyran stood beside his car, looking down at the beach below. It was still fairly cool, so there were only a few people down at the beach today. No one he knew. No one that would know him. He hoped none of them would know Neal either.
“I hope you haven’t been here all night,” Neal said as he walked up beside Kyran.
“No,” Kyran replied. “I left to find a place to sleep.” Neal didn’t need to know what meant a place to park his car where it wouldn’t be seen and he could sleep in the back seat.
“Good,” Neal said. “I didn’t bring my car,” he added. “It doesn’t make sense to have two if we’re going to be strapped for cash.”
