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
As Cassie went to get out of the truck in a hurry, she slid out of the seat and to the ground landing on her ankle and twisting it. She felt ridiculous about falling and the pain brought more tears to her eyes. As she sat there in an undignified heap, Peter clambered out of the truck and came around to her. “Are you alright, Cassie?”
“NO Peter, I am not ok. I twisted my ankle or maybe even broke it. Good job! I certainly can’t go to work tonight like this. I don’t think I can get up off the ground and walk. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!”
“Cassie, I didn’t mean for any of this to happen. We had a beautiful afternoon at the beach and things went downhill from there. Let me help you up and I will take you over to the urgent care. They can x-ray your ankle and let us know what is wrong. Call your mother and ask her to meet us there. You are still on her insurance right?”
“Yes, until I finish college. That is if I can afford to go. You had better hope this isn’t broken because I need to work and keep up my school grades so I can hopefully qualify for a scholarship for school. Mom? I am with Peter and I fell out of the truck and hurt my ankle. I can’t walk on it and I am afraid it might be broken. He is taking me to the urgent care center. Can you meet us there with the insurance card?”
Mrs. Jones was concerned and said she would meet them there. “Stay off it as much as possible, honey.”
Cassie called the restaurant and told them she wouldn’t be in tonight and depending on the outcome of the x-rays it might be a while before she could work again. She stared out the window on the way to urgent care.
