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:

Thomas stroked Ginny’s smooth skin tenderly trying to comfort her. Even though her mother had been very ill she was not prepared for her death so soon. Her mother had just started talking about moving to a long term care facility so she would be more comfortable. She knew that the daily stress on Ginny, who felt that she had to take care of her mother, plus go to school and work was making her restrict herself to home and not go out with Thomas and her friends. The upcoming wedding was also a problem. Ginny found it hard to make definite plans because her mother was not able to be an active participant in the planning or the actual wedding itself. And Ginny was worried that she wouldn’t be able to attend the wedding at all.
Now this! “How could this have happened?” she asked the doctor. “Was he sure it was a stroke?”
“Well,” the doctor said, “I am as sure as I can be. She was already suffering the effects of a serious stroke that left her bed-ridden and with 24 hour nursing care. I am going to say that the signs point to a massive stroke. The last one unfortunately. Before the major stroke there had been signs of mini-strokes which weren’t noticed. That one could have killed her but she survived with most of her faculties intact for the most part. Another, massive stroke is not unusual and this one happened to be fatal, my dear. I am truly sorry for your loss.” He briefly shook her hand and after conferring with the ambulance crew, he left.
