Three Line Tales: The Inebriated

“AMY!” He screamed from the doorway of his cabin, his vision blurred. He stumbled, drunk, down the ladder but missed his footing and fell flat on his face with a thud and a groan.

She ran to her own door in a wild panic after the fright of the noise, only to see him splattered, pickled and squiffy on the floor again.

“Told ya we shoulda gots ones wi’out steps. Ya can’t do steps when you’s always pissed Pa,” she laughed and with a smirk, turned away from her inebriated father.

Thanks for the prompt Sonya, and for the picture Niv Rozenburg

You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
  • Link back to this post (& check the link shows up under the weekly post).
  • Tag your post with 3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader).
  • Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
  • Have fun.

Happy three-lining!


  1. This is very creative. Getting to tell a complete story in just 3 lines. I like how have veered away from the beauty of the homes, etc and chosen to focus on the steps. Good thinking!
