Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Creating an Angel
In her day, giggles had been famous. Now she was ‘merely’ a legend.
Midnight had passed. She packed her tools. Paint – gold, white, amber, olive, black and her trademark Cayman blue. Propellant. Stencils.
Carefully, listening, feeling, she clambered onto the railway. Forty minutes before the train.
Using each stencil in turn, she unerringly sprayed colour beside colour. The tang of solvent stung her nostrils. She imagined the radiant angel taking shape, though her age-blinded eyes couldn’t see it.
She added her tag.
The rails hissed.
There was a rumble.
Timing it to perfection, giggles stepped in front of the train.
