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 September 2021
Serena reaches into the trunk before closing it and grabs the mug. “Wait, guys, I brought a bottle of champagne to celebrate if I pulled off getting us all together again. However, I forgot the glasses. So this mug will have to do.” She takes out a bottle of water and some tissues from her purse and cleans the mug. She runs to catch up with them after getting the bottle of champagne out of her car.
They set the chairs out on the bandstand and start to plan. Serena pulls out an old photo of three babies. “This is us. The hospital took it, or should I say the nurse took it, and she was the one who found me to let me know what happened as it always bothered her.”
Selena said, “I think my parents were in cahoots with yours. I have found some letters from them mentioning your names and how you were doing, and they were wondering how I was doing. So I looked further and found photographs with the 6 of them together, their names on the back, and I think they were all friends. Later there were pictures of the six of them holding three babies that all looked alike, and then they stopped writing and exchanging pictures all of a sudden. Probably as we were getting older and would start to notice we looked alike. The two pictures they got looked identical, and of course, I have seen my baby pictures as well, so I know we all looked alike, but I had no idea what to do or how to go about it. Serena, I am so happy that nurse contacted you.” Tears were running down her face, and soon they were all crying and hugging again.
Suddenly a pickup truck pulled up, and the driver and passenger started to unload an organ and other instruments. “Damn,” Sabrina says. “It looks like they are having a concert tonight. We have to move somewhere else. They folded up the chairs, grabbed the bottle of champagne and the mug, and go back to their cars. “Wait, I know of another park, and it has a lot of shade, and it is usually quiet as most people come here because of the playground and the bandstand.”
