Hidey Hole – writing prompt

Hidey Hole

by Teresa Dean Smeigh copyright August 2015

I see absolutely everything.”

“Let me see, let me see!” Pop pushes Billy trying to get in to see closer.

“Patience Pop, let me get the angle just right so we get the best view.”

“Let ME see, Billy,” pop almost shouts in his haste.

“Sshh Pop, someone may come in and hear us. You’ll get your turn soon.”

A door bangs and both men jump guiltily away from the little hole they drilled to make a peep-hole through the wooden deer’s eye.

Agnes rushes out and hugs both men to her. “You guys did a lovely job hanging the deer in the Ladies Room. I just love it!”

“May I use the Ladies Room?” a sweet voice asks.

Agnes says,”Of course dearie, let me show you where it is.”

She leads her off and both men fight over who gets to watch first.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Teresa – you had me laughing here with this one! Never thought of a story with peeping Tom’s when I wrote that opening line. 🙂 Thank you for writing for the Mondays Finish the Story challenge and be well…. ^..^


  7. Ah… a most disgusting ulterior motive to help…. creepy, indeed. Clever use of the prompt!

    One of the things I enjoy about participating in challenges like this is the variety and different perspectives that emerge in the stories. This is great!
