42 Words #8

Thanks to everyone who joined in our horrific time with last weeks theme of HORROR.  It was vast but in a strange way, surprisingly beautiful to read your micro stories so lets begin the recap…

Dave from MMA Storytime

Caramel from Learner at Love

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Rugby43 from The Bag Lady

Jenna from Raspberry Ripples

A great selection of tales for our HORROR theme but let’s check out what Chelsea has selected with her pick of number 8.

Now this week’s theme is an interesting one and I must admit one of my favourites from the list, though achieving your goal in 42 words is going to be a bit of an ask.

It’s time to sharpen your wits, gather up your lock picking tools and put your head down for this week’s theme is …

ESCAPE.

What are you escaping from?  Where, when, how?  This is all for you to decide, the only requirement is that you fit it all in the 42 word limit.

This week I am pleased to state that Dave has selected number 24 for next week but as always feel free to keep them coming.  We still have plenty of options left to select and there are still great themes within the available choices and if you haven’t realised yet the list is alphabetical, so perhaps that will entice you to choose.

GONE 2 3 GONE GONE 6 GONE
GONE 9 GONE GONE 12 GONE GONE
15 16 GONE GONE 19 20 GONE
GONE GONE 24 25 GONE GONE GONE
29 30 31 GONE GONE 34 35
36 GONE 38 39 GONE GONE GONE

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

It started with a gold coin and went downhill

Lilac had entered the bar with misgivings.  The off-key piano, the dim lighting and the sawdust scattered over the floor had suggested this wasn’t going to be a great first date but then she’d spied it – a leprechaun.

Time to escape.
