Another week over, so here are the results from last week but don’t fret Kristian will have another round tomorrow which can be found here.
But first …

- 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.

And the words,
“She had little doubt that she was about to suffer the same fate as Elizabeth.” – Midnight Pleasures With A Scoundrel – Lorraine Heath
This is my take on the prompt:
Marg stifled a curse, she had little doubt that she was about to suffer the same fate as Elizabeth and it was all her own fault.
She’d spent hours in preparation, she’d made sure she arrived in time, that she was well hydrated, that she would succeed … but now it was all in jeopardy and all because she’d listened to them, the professionals, the elite, those who knew everything.
She should have been more confident and know better.
Running down beside the river she grimaced, a blister on the day of the competition was the last thing she needed.
