The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
“I refuse to be associated with such a monstrosity! I will not be ridiculed!” Mario Tanassi, an architect, threw down the plans for the new turret, stomping out of the room.
A storm had blown down a tree that landed on the turret, necessitating its replacement. Marie Renzi, the homeowner, wanted to rebuild it using colored tiles in a pattern. She wanted to inject some artistic expression in her bleak environment.
The new architect, Giovanni Leone, had his doubts but did as she asked. The turret attracted attention from the very start. Signore Leone never wanted for work after that.
