FFfAW: Invisible hero


This week’s photo prompt is provided by Louise with The Storyteller’s Abode. Thank you Louise!

The woman paused to look at the scarecrow. It seemed to her like a strange place to put a scarecrow because it was propped up by gate rather than standing in the field. Was hardly going to scare the crows away in that position.

Standing there he had no choice but to just watch as his salvation walked on by. If they had given him a mouth he would have been able to plead with her to try and reverse his own terrible fate. He didn’t want to be invisible any longer. Why had he tried to stop those poachers?

  1. Okay, I’m picturing that he was always a scarecrow without a mouth. But he used to be out in the open where he could find other means to get his job done. Until the run-in with unusual poachers, who stuck him in an odd position, forever prisoned. Now he yearns for the ability to speak. How terrible!

  2. It seems we both focused on the idea of the poor scarecrow having no mouth. I like your story of him having been moved to the gate by poachers as a punishment for trying to stop them. What good’s a scarecrow at the gate? Lol Let’s hope the farmer comes to his rescue. Nice story.
