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.

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.

AND the second part of the story is the photo prompt from Friday Fictioneers.
By Tessa Dean March 2020
Cassie’s mother hurried up as Peter was getting Cassie out of the truck. “What happened?”
“We were fighting and when I went to get out of the truck I slid off the seat and landed on my ankle and turned it. I hope it isn’t broken. This jerk almost hit me for telling him to get a job and take me on a real date. He was complaining because I work so much. He knows why I work and there was no reason for him to even consider hitting me. I told him to let me out of the truck right then. So I slipped getting out. This is all his fault.”
Cassies’s mother turned to Peter and said, “YOU had better never, ever hit my daughter, do you hear me?”
“Yes ma’am, I didn’t mean to, I was just so mad that someone had locked us out of the truck and then when I complained that she worked too much, she complained that I didn’t work or take her on real dates. If was just a bad reaction. I promise to be more careful around her.”
They helped Cassie into the waiting room at the urgent care center and checked her in. An x-ray showed a mild sprain and a couple of weeks with her foot elevated and walking on crutches should take care of it. Great Cassie thought I get to miss a couple of weeks of work or at least one week if I am real good and stay off it for most of the time.
***100 word Friday Fictioneers***
Cassie’s mom took her home. They got to the door to the apartment building and someone had left a box of trash in the doorway. Cassie waited until her mom got rid of the box. She had to work her way up the stairs to their apartment on the crutches with difficulty and that would be where she stayed until she could walk without the crutches.
Kimberly, 17 years old, was watching the 3 younger children. They all crowded around Cassie and asked what the crutches were. “They are to help me walk, I sprained my ankle, and it hurts.”
