Friday Fictioneers – Sold!

Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting Friday Fictioneers.  Here’s the interesting (and a little bit freaky) photo prompt for this week:

Here’s my story:


The waiters buzzed around the art gallery serving champagne and canapes.  Emma took a glass of bubbly from the tray and continued examining the exquisite paintings.  Though masterpieces, she could still not comprehend how they sold for millions of dollars.

A strong force pulled Emma toward the back of the room.  The unique reptile-like sculpture fascinated her, with its intricate patterns and twisty spiny tail. Emma watched the sculpture’s psychedelic swirling eyes with amazement, hypnotised by its power.

Suddenly her hand shot into the air.

“Five million dollars,” she heard herself say.

The hammer jolted her awake. “Sold!”

  1. It is unbelievable how much some pieces of art go for. Think of all the amazing things which could be done with the money instead. Great representation of that world.

  2. I love art but I’ve always found the prices some pieces sell for to be quite mind-boggling! I wonder how many have been bought in an hypnotic trance like this one? Great story, Rachel. 🙂
