It's the weekend! Time to exercise your writing chops and join Jenny Matlock for Saturday Centus. It's such a fun idea. Mr. Jenny provides us with a prompt, and we write a short story around it. 100 words or less, not counting the prompt. You have to use the prompt in it's original form, then let your imagination run free. My contribution for this week is below, the prompt words are in bold font. Oh, and this week our prompt was written by Jeff Campbell, one of our weekly contributors! Thanks Jeff, this was a fun one!
Just when I thought I had made it through another day without drawing Sister Ignacia's unwanted attention, I felt the dreaded tap on my shoulder.
"Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning and how forlorn she seemed?" Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought. Maybe Sister would get off my back.
Why did Sister think that Elizabeth and I could ever be friends? Polar opposites, her biggest concerns were hair, makeup and clothes. Me? No makeup, long straight hair. Clothes? Whatever I threw on after rolling out of bed. Favorite accessories? Books.
" I'm sorry you're having a bad week. If you want to talk, call ." Duty done. And that little note led to the longest friendship of my life.
