Poised #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt this week:

Forlorn, he stood waiting.

The game should have been over a long time ago, but no one had found him. No one had called out to say it was time to go home.

Patrick felt himself wilt.

Had Bob and the gang forgotten him?

His arms began to stiffen. He really needed to get back into the water. But should he risk it?

Here he was, poised on the brink of victory. He’d never won a game of Hide & Seek with Bob before. That Bob could squeeze himself into some tiny gaps. He was impossible to find, sometimes. Well, what do you expect, with him being a sponge.

Patrick raised his starfish head. No. I’m going to sit this out, just a little longer…

This story was inspired by the photo, and Spongebob Squarepants, as the figure I saw made me think of Patrick the Starfish straight away!

    I can relate very well to this piece, Ritu. I once hid myself so well from my parents they called the police.
