Our New Year’s Holiday

Ah… holiday sweet holiday, I think taking out my ‘Guide to an Epic New Year’s Holiday.’

“You’ve got to see this,” I hear Promila call out from the balcony; “There’s a couple having quite a fight down there.”

“Come on, it’s New Year’s. You should seriously consider a resolution of not poking your nose in other people’s lives and for goodness sake stop leaning out like that; it’s an accident waiting to happen.”

Too Late.

I hear a shriek, splash and rush out to see a heavily drenched (and stunned) couple along with an equally confused Promila.

I guess we can cross-off a Pool Party from my New Year’s list.


The photo prompt has been given by C. E. Ayr at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The word prompt (Epic) has been given by GirlieOnTheEdge hosted by Denise Farley.

  1. That is one way to make a splash on New Year’s Eve even if you are the unexpected guest!


    1. I’ll be sure to tell my friend that. (though am not sure if she’ll understand the pun there)


  2. Well, I guess she kind of deserved it! 🙂


    1. Maybe 🙂 Though it doesn’t seem to have had an effect on her snooping around.

  3. At least she stopped the fight


  4. Nice double prompt story.
    (Don’t tell anyone, but I have never in my entire life done that, horseplay-fall-and/or-pull-another-into-a-swimming-pool. Damn! I’m probably wise to let that one go.)
    Fun Six

  5. She had it coming. Epic story. Good use of the cue.


  6. laid “resolutions” of mice and men… lol
    I daresay one of those two had a self fulfilling prophesy 😀

    Happy New Year, Bernadette!


    1. Thank you 😀 A belated Happy New Year to you too!


  7. Oh, ouch. I’m glad she fell into the pool and not concrete.


    1. Me too. I just hope I’m never in a situation to explain how she fell.
