Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Tales. I’m starting a new story, and it’s always fitting to start it with a picture as the prompt. The story is called, Trouble with Eden, and it will be part of my All for Love Series. Picture prompt scenes are limited to 300 words. Here’s the picture I selected.
The sounds of sirens roused him. Had he passed out? Where was his phone? …
“Get a collar on him.” Hands fiddled around his neck. “Mr. Rivers, can you hear me?”
He cracked open an eye and stared into the paramedic’s face. “Yes.”
“Good. We’re going to get you out of here and transport you to the hospital. I’m going to cover your face while the firemen get the door open.”
He tried to nod, but the collar made it impossible to move his head. Instead, he closed his eyes again.
The screeching sound of metal filled his ears. Within seconds, someone had extricated him from the car and placed him on his back on a gurney.
“My car … I need the stuff in my car,” he muttered.
“Don’t worry about anything. The tow truck’s here. You can get whatever you need from the service station once you’re released from the hospital.”
“Which service station?” There couldn’t only be one in town
“Hang on. The man moved a few feet away, He turned his head to follow his movements. A tow truck was backing towards the rear of his vehicle. Someone jumped out—a man with long, blond hair, pulled into a ponytail and yanked through the opening of his ball cap. The man was slight—must be just out of his teens.
“E J, where you taking this one?”
“Hey, Carl. It’s a Mercedes. Only place I can take it is Frampton’s in Westboro. I’ve already notified them, and someone will meet me there. Guy okay?”
The tow truck driver’s voice was higher pitched than the medic’s. It had to be the injury he’d sustained; otherwise, he would swear that it was a woman’s voice. Whoever heard of a lady tow truck driver?
That’s it. Stay safe and don’t forget to check out the other Tuesday Tales
