100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#101
Posted on August 6, 2013 by jfb57
…after all the excitement…

As usual, you have just 100 words. Please make sure it is suitable for a PG certificate and do visit each other.

Here is my contribution:
The time and day she couldn’t remember
She was told it was a day in late September
She had erased it totally from her memory
Her skin felt tight and clammy
After all the excitement she’d been told about
They were so sure, she knew there could be no doubt
She refused to believe it but knew it must be true
Her body was beaten, bruised black and blue
Courage was hers to take so they said
Her eyes scanned the writing, her brain read
Her name now was so very different
It felt so fraudulent
She signed the testament.

  1. I am fascinated with your blog...I read it often. I dabble in writing myself and I love the little challenges on your blog.
    I went to a writer's workshop a few years ago and these are the types of exercises they provided--I really enjoyed them. It was so amazing to see how different people could come up with such different material, given the same few words or a picture to work with!
