50 Word Thursday #68 – The Results

Hi All,

Thanks to all that contributed last week and this week it’s Kristian turn again and you can check out his post on his blog.  So let’s recap last weeks adventures.

The Rules:

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

Here’s the picture:


“As she watched, Miss Tonks drew a pistol,” – M.C. Beaton’s Colonel Sandhurst to the Rescue

And here are the submissions for this week:

Michele Jones from Out of the Shadows

Rhen Laird from Cobbled Contemplations

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian

And here’s my submission for the week:

With a weary sigh George looked down the laneway, he’d known this was a big mistake from the outset.  You shouldn’t give jobs to sweet spinsters who’d never faced anything tougher than a garden spider in their entire lives but the decision hadn’t been his, his superior had been insistent that Miss Tonks take this task and proved her worth. 

Shuffling his feet, George scowled, assassinations were always difficult and this target was alternatively loved and despised making it even more trying.  For an instance George considered intervening as Miss Tonks drew a pistol but then he realized the woman who had set this all in motion was watching with a pleased smile.

Her smile faded quickly though as Miss Tonks pivoted with an unbelievable speed for a seventy year old and with stony features pointed the gun at the other woman.

“Hasta la vista, baby,” Miss Tonks stated dryly.
