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 March 2020
Peter looked over at Cassie who was still pouting. She looked like she might cry. God, women were so emotional.
“Are you going to speak to me, Cassie?
“No, Peter I am not! So there!” That wasn’t the reaction he was hoping for.
“Why are you so mad at me?”
“Because you are a self centered jerk. You know how hard I work for my family and all you do is lie around, do a little yard work and then look for free things to do when we are together. Get yourself a job and start taking me on a real date for once. A nice dinner and maybe a movie. Is that too much to ask?”
He raised his fist at her and pulled it back as if to hit her. She cringed and screamed, “Peter, what the hell are you doing?”
He stopped, startled at his reaction to her criticism of his lack of a job. God, he almost hit her. No wonder she cringed away from him.
“Look Cassie, I am so sorry for that. I don’t think I would have really hit you, would I? I don’t want to think I would. Now Charlie I could beat the hell out of him and enjoy every minute of it, but I didn’t mean to raise my hand to you. Oh, man, can you ever forgive me?
Cassie was still staring at him in horror. “I don’t know what to think right now. Let me out of the truck please. I will walk the rest of the way home. I don’t want to talk to you right now. I have some thinking to do and if you are smart so will you. Think about what I mean to you and whether we have a future together and without all this violence. This is way too much for me to handle right now. And get a damn job!”
