100 Word Challenge – Week 20 part 1

Joining the weekly 100 words challenge for Grown ups. A selection of prompts for this week is below, based upon the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible, which was celebrated last week.

The alarm clock sounded and an arm stretched out to snooze it. She had been awake for hours already, as was the case most days. After a while she headed off to the bathroom for the regular morning ritual, joined by the recent addition of feeling sick, so sick that she could barely get dressed. After a forced morning drink she left the house clutching the important envelope. When she arrived and handed it to him, he looked surprised and said “why?” to which she replied “no surprises, the writing has been on the wall for some time now”

For this week, I have continued with a second part.

    Gosh – what a suspense-filled ending J! Brilliantly creation of a tortured character and plenty of scope for this story to continue! Fab!


  4. My guess is pregnant and leaving her partner/husband. But there's only one way we'll know for sure…


  5. Him Up North says:

    My guess is pregnant by the boss to whom she hands her notice… Intriguing.


  6. SusanKMann says:

    oooh this is very intriguing. Is it morning sickness? Hope to hear more. x


  7. Anna says:

    Intriguing indeed, I am with Sally-Jayne …not decided whether it is a pregnancy, stress, upset or excitement. The mood of this piece leads me to think that she is NOT a happy lady…


  8. Sally-Jayne says:

    Intriguing. First I thought morning sickness, then I thought stressful job and handing in her notice. Tell us more.
