This week’s story is based on this image:
« That picture was taken in the summer of ’69. » I had told her from across the room as she fixated her gaze on the one man in the middle of that picture, somewhat puzzled. « His name is Jay Gatsby » I explained. « People always told stories about how he chose to live his life, no-one really knows anything « real » about him though. Some say he was a conman, others a hero. There’s a fine line between love and hate, but he could make you feel both of ’em at once, in the most intense way imaginable. » « Ugh, what baloney » she replied. »
A big thank you to Valeska from 3A for doing this during the holidays – that’s motivation for you 🙂

My pleasure! Thanks for doing it during the holidays Valeska!
Well done on your entry into this week’s 100 Word Challenge.
I really liked the way that you have started your story. It’s always interesting to start a story with some dialogue.
I also loved your choices of verbs, especially « fixated ». It’s a great word to choose.
When using speech, sometimes it’s a good habit to start a new line when someone new speaks, so that it helps the reader.
Keep up the excellent work.
