Help!

Here are my carefully chosen four score and nineteen words inspired by the photo at Friday Fictioneers.

I was looking for a new apartment and saw a nice one advertised. The agent was busy so she lent me the key.

It had a small outside bit, and you got to it like they do in Friends where they climb out of the window.

It was one of those slidy up and down jobs – sash window? Anyway I clambered out to look at the view, and there was a ping and a bang and I realised the window had fallen shut!

To cut a long story short, I ended up dating the firefighter that rescued me. Yea!

  2. Cute! I had a close encounter with a fireman last fall when I fell and broke my wrist. It made the pain juuuuust a little easier to bear! ;-)

  6. Lovely little slice of life, and a happy ending. I'm reading it as if the narrator is writing in her journal.
    "slidy up and down jobs" - :-)
