Writing Prompt: Day 260

260Day 260 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Would you rather write about a character who lives in this house or this house?

Shannon: We lived in a tiny house in the middle of woods. We didn’t choose it because we were on some minimalist kick, or because it was all we could afford. We just wanted our house to be a place where we could be together. At our old house we had so much space we could spend the whole day without ever crossing paths. We grew so distant we forgot if we even still loved each other. When we moved into our tiny house it didn’t take long to realize we did.

Erin: I liked my little house. It was just enough room for my few belongings. I could afford way bigger and loved how people always assumed that someone who could would. People would think I was joking when I pointed to my front door. My abode was small and humble, but a larger residence would not make me any happier. I didn’t feel the need to live up to expectations others had for me.

Where is home?

    ‘Looks like this is her..?’ Nonetheless, he stops at the front door and knocks. He’s seen in by a man in a suit. Denisa came down not long after.
    “Thank you, Weston,” she says. The man walks out of the room. Denisa turns to Josh, smiling. “Shall we?”
    “Your house is…” he looks up at the ceiling. “Big. Reminds me of pictures from California.”
    Denisa chuckles a bit, “Yeah… Mom likes the architecture. Red roof tiles, pale yellow walls-”
    “Open windows,” Josh continues.
    Denisa nods, “And palm trees in the yard.”
    “I’ll watch out for coconuts,” Josh quips. They start up the stairs. Josh looks out one of the back windows and exclaims, “You have a pool?”
