Once again, here is MadisonWoods FridayFictioneers clever photo prompt titled: BLIMP (6/08/12).
Below is my 100-word story inspired by the above photo.
*** BLIMP ***
She was lost. Mentally and emotionally, with a closed, muddled, solitary mind. Modern drugs added to her isolation. For relief from her self-imposed prison, she sought professional help.
He was a tall, unattractive, pipe-holder. Since her instincts never failed, her inner voice whispered not to flee. On the third visit, moving from chair to couch, she felt uneasy with him sitting behind her.
"Give me your hand," he said, softly. "Trust me."
Placing her hesitant, trembling palm into his gentle hand, with tears welling, she saw the blimp sailing peacefully in the serene, iris-blue sky. As it floated by his hi-rise office window, she relaxed and felt safe.
