42 Words #3

Hi All,

Before we go and see what wonderful, exciting, thrillseeking theme Sadje has selected with her choice of number 3, let’s first see where Dave lead us with the choice of 24. Β It was a venture into the great unknown of the PARANORMAL and wow what a ride, we got some amazing micro stories, which you can peruse below.

Sara from Relax It’s All Write

I hear you
I see you
But, are you really there
You bump in the night
Your eyes gleam from the corner
But, are you really there
Why haunt me so
I loved you
I still do
Please, stop torturing me
Dad

Rhen from Z & Z Poetry

Charles from Potatoes and the Promise of More Potatoes

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Dave from MMA Storytime

Now you may have noticed that I was really excited by Sadje’s pick of number 3 last week and I will now clarify why. Β This theme is huge, this theme has so many options, its probably the one with the most paths to pick from and I am expecting BIG things, guys.

For this week’s theme is …

CLOWNS

Yep, big shoes, red noses, honking horns or … creepy smiles, dark laughter and all things terrifying. Β We are sooooo lucky, we have clowns, lets bring in the clowns, the sad clowns, the mad clowns, the happy clowns, the funny clowns, I ain’t fussed, any clowns.

The world is your oyster folks, the big top your scene but remember the underlying rule, 42 words and its the final curtain call.

Also, this week I am giving a big shout out to Sara from Relax It’s All Write for she has chosen the theme for next week with her pick of 34 but as always if any one wants to nominate a number you’re more than welcome.

GONE 2 GONE GONE GONE 6 GONE
GONE 9 GONE GONE 12 GONE GONE
15 16 GONE GONE 19 20 GONE
GONE GONE GONE 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:

One minute you’re here, the next you’re gone.

He smeared the white cream thick and then with a steady hand he painted the markings around his eyes and applied the rouge to his cheeks.

He even smiled as he positioned the bright red nose.

Then he picked up the gun.
