Photo Mysteries: A Writers' Game #13

Every week, Carmi, a journalist who blogs at Written Inc, posts a photo theme.  This week's theme is "greyish."
On my blog, we turn Carmi's theme into a game.  I find a photo that fits his theme, then I choose a title of a story that might fit his theme and a single line from that otherwise unwritten story.  After that, it's your turn to create a title and a single line of your story to fit the photo.  Some weeks, people get really creative.  Here's one from a couple of weeks ago that was fairly popular, if you need to see some examples.
So, ready to go "greyish"?
Here's my photo:

My story title is: Unsaintly
My single line is: Bobby held my hand tighter and whispered, "Is that a door at the end?"

Okay, it's all yours now.  Give it a try and play along -- a title and a single line from a story to "match" the picture.


  1. The Field Trip

    "Now children, no running, or talking or spitting of gum or texting, and especially no snapping of any cameras as we must preserve this beauty for ages." Charlie mutters, "Yeah, and no fun."

  2. Cloistered.

    "Where have all the grey monks gone?

    1. Where have all the grey monks gone, long, long time ago?
      Where have all the grey monks gone? Gone to graveyards, every one.
      When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

      Sorry. I just couldn't help myself. :)

  3. Title: Return to Hogwarts

    First Line: Harry was sure that Ron would get to the door before the new first years pelted him with Tomatoes, but wasn't sure that he would.

    1. It DOES look like Hogwarts! I never thought of that!

  4. Title: Skewed Straight
    First line: The play of light and arch in the corridor gave one the feeling of being funneled towards the door at the end.

    P.S. Thanks for the flashback idea on the story I'm writing. As for the Romanians . . . in real life, I think they were actually Russians.

    1. And here I was thinking it was that long-haired Italian fellow you met in China..... ;)

  5. Title: It Happened One Saturday Afternoon
    First line: A faint breeze brushed by Richard, chilling him as he sat in the sunlight streaming through the window.

  6. Confirmation Day

    "His heart was beating as he walked down the hall, still not sure what name he was going to pick for his confirmation."

  7. Oooh. These are nice, people!
    Keep 'em coming.

  8. Last day

    "I only wish I didn't have to have my head shaved..."
