Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words are:
By Tessa Dean January 2021
Thomas and Ginny had attended a local rally for “Black Lives Matter.” There was a sense of unrest in the air. Ginny began to worry that the rally was going to turn into violence of some sort. She glanced around her warily watching for any signs of an outbreak of violence. So far it had been peaceful, but so many of these rallies turned into violence. They lived in a small town and so hopefully those huge violent rallies you saw on television wouldn’t happen here.
Thomas put his arm around Ginny and pulled her tight to him. She felt comforted by the strength of his arms around her and relaxed just a bit. Just then the Chief of Police Ronald Smith stepped up to the podium to speak. The officers on patrol detail were tense hoping that it would remain peaceful. He finished his speech to a round of clapping and yelling. The rally remained peaceful and after the speeches of a few more of the community leaders, the rally broke up and everyone departed peacefully.
Thomas and Ginny walked home to spend the rest of the night watching movies with Thomas’s family. It was family movie night at the Banks house. As they entered the house they could smell the popcorn in the air. It had been steadily popping for the last half hour in preparation.
