Every week, Priceless Joy over at Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers provides a photo prompt for participants to write a 100-150 word piece based on the photo. I thought I’d give this week’s a try!
This place is so beautiful, she thought bitterly, tears threatening her eyes.
They said if she helped on last time they’d never call her again. With a grimace, she pulled the devices from her pocket. Robert will not have died in vain.
The first crevice was easy enough to find, and she placed the device in its new home. The second boulder proved more difficult, and it was when she finally found the second crevice, that she heard the click of the safety’s release.
She had let her guard down. Knowing the capability of the thing she held in her hands, she realized she could either finish or escape with her life. Her brother would want her to live on, but she didn’t want his sacrifice to be for naught.

My word count came out to 147 for this prompt. I hope you enjoyed it!
