Visual Dare 19: Depth

Time to get my imagination back into gear and try another visual dare from Angela at Anonymous Legacy.

This weeks prompt is DEPTH with the picture prompt below.

“You know I hate heights!” She squealed as they stepped onto the high bridge.

“I won’t let go. Promise!”

His eyes were somewhere between a shade of dazzling green and solid earthy brown, sparkling yet dependable.

How did she get to be so lucky? Whisked half way round the world seeing sights she only ever dreamed of.

Cautiously she looked around her; this really was a view to take her breath away.

He stopped suddenly dropping to one knee, she thought to tie an unruly shoelace, but when he held out his hand she saw something glint in the sunlight…

Youngest son says "he pulls out a gun and shoots her in the head and she falls off the bridge well and truly dead!"

But what do you think?


  1. a lovely pastoral scene though I do like your son's instinct for contrast and conflict: Tarantino to your Ivory Merchant. :))

    Glad to see some writing from you, Sarah!

  2. WOW this is great!! I do love the ambiguous ending --- it could go either very sinister or very very Happy Ever After. "Sparkling yet dependable" eyes - love it. It sets up the hope - and the question - for that last sentence.

    Great job! Thank you for participating in the Visual Dare!!!

  3. I must confess I originally saw a sparkling engagement ring in the scene but as I was writing my "dark side" thought of a knife so I left it open ended!
    A friend on Facebook said handcuffs - but she's been reading 50 shades of grey!
