And the words,

“She reached the door, threw it open, and, as the train picked up speed, she leapt out.” -The Duke And The Lady In Red – Lorraine Heath

Ramya Vivek from My Musings

This is my take on the prompt:

George had been insistent.
George was always insistent.
George had been persistent.
George was always persistent.
George had been a complete pain until she had agreed.
And like always George had been wrong.
She reached the door, threw it open, and, as the train picked up speed, she leapt out.

50 Word Thursday #94

Hi Everyone,

Another week and another 50 Word Thursday and I know that you all enjoyed Kristian’s prompt from last week and will want to check out the results here.  So, you may not know this but when I first started this challenge it was prompted by the fact that sometimes I would read a book and think, gee I wish I’d thought of that line and this couldn’t be more true than the words I’ve picked for this week but before we get to that lets review …

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.

I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:

50 Word Thursday #93

Bob had a plan, it wasn’t the best of plans, but it was a plan.

First he had to escape this room and after that, he had to make his way down the parade to the West Pier and finally once he overcame his fear of water board the boat that waited, then, he would finally be free.

Bob, who was overly cautious by nature, knew that the others thought he’d gone mad when he discussed his plan with them, but he craved more that this life of ease.

Sitting himself at the back door he started step one.

“Miaow.”

And the words,

“The words couldn’t have been delivered with more force if they’d been accompanied by a swift kick to this gut.” ― Lorraine Heath, Surrender to the Devil

Ramya Vivek from My Musings

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian

Hemalatha from Frame of Soul

This is my take on the prompt:

It’s with great regret that I need to inform you that your dearly departed Father made some unwise investments in his later years.

The words couldn’t have been delivered with more force if they’d been accompanied by a swift kick to this gut but more had come.

Gone was the country estate, gone was the prosperous farms; his Father had sold it all to begin again in Australia.

Marcus sighed, recalling his dejection at the realization.

Luckily he’d not taken after his Father and the resort he’d built on the coast was now thriving.

Australia, he’d drink to that.

50 Word Thursday #91

91

When Maggie had insisted on travelling out of the town and to the seaside Dirk had been resistant.

They were tourists and though it all appeared quite civilized at the resort; there was no telling what really went on.

Now, peering inside the cafe, Dirk felt his comment was justified for although it was a simple thing to be doing, something strange was happening.

“Alright Dirk, they eat using they’re feet but we can live with it, can’t we?  I’m awful hungry.” 

She was right of course.

“As long as they washed them,” Dirk offered smugly, having the last word.

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!

And the words,

“You worry me, Catherine. You seem to think you’re quite invincible.” ― Lorraine Heath, In Bed with The Devil

Ramya Vivek from My Musings

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales From The Mind Of Kristian

This is my take on the prompt:

The first step had been the hardest, for Stella’s words had been echoing in her mind.

“You worry me, Catherine. You seem to think you’re quite invincible.”

Stella had said it with weariness and Catherine frowned, she always took the risks and Stella just waited patiently to pick up the pieces and put them back together.

Catherine frowned; Stella had never understood that life was to be lived.

Tossing her head Catherine glared at the idiot walking along the beach in a white T-Shirt and then she began to flap her wings.

He was daring her to poop on him.

50 Word Thursday #89

89

“What do you call yourself?” the Fawn said at last. Such a soft sweet voice it had!

Monty rolled his eyes, the stuff they were showing kid’s nowdays, it was enough to put a seagull off of his cold chips but at least the kids did come.  Last winter he’d nearly died of starvation!

As the performance came to an end he strutted over, now he’d play his part.

Dutifully he cawed but they all hurried past and confused he frowned, what were those things over their mouths?

Mournfully he eyed the sea; perhaps he’d learn to fish after all.

50 Word Thursday #88 – The Results

Hi All,

So, Week 88 is over and we’re heading into Week 89 and I’m sure you are as excited as I am to see what prompts Kristian has chosen for us this week but first lets go see what fodder last week provided but first …

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)

And the words,

“One should not allow untoward events to interfere with one’s regular habits or social obligations.” ― Carola Dunn, The Bloody Tower

Rugby43 from The Bag Lady

PCGuyIV from My Author-itis

Rhen from Breathing Shallow Poetry

This is my take on the prompt:

“One should not allow untoward events to interfere with one’s regular habits or social obligations.”

Martin pursed his lips, it seemed like a mighty understatement to him, “Untoward events?”

“The show must go on and all that.”

The other’s jovial tone was mighty annoying when one was staring at the burnt out wreck of one’s car, but it was teeth grinding when your dog had also disappeared.

“Reverend, we ain’t gonna make it to the church in time.”

“The Lord will provide, my dear Martin.”

Lighting a smoke Martin sat down on a rock, stating noncommittedly, “We’ll see ‘bout that.”

50 Word Thursday #87

Tabitha suspected when the sorrow came, it would be a gentle sorrow but it wouldn’t be a disagreeable consciousness, more an awareness that she would never do this again.

“Are you sure you want to do this?”

His voice brought a few glances but Tabitha shrugged them off, they’d never comprehend what this moment meant, but Adam did.

“It’s kind of now or never Adam and besides where else do we have time to go?”

Adam pursed his lips and looked away.

This was her last chance to climb; the amputation of her left leg was scheduled for early tomorrow.
