SILENT
STILL
POINT

**********

Jack stood still, silent and pointed to the group of older kids that were searching for them. Jack and the younger boys slid quietly into the old barn and hid behind the bales of hay. “Come out, come out, wherever you are,” the older kids shouted. Jack and his group ignored them and they passed by the barn and headed into town. Once they were safely out of ear shot, Jack and his group moved off away from the town and headed home. They didn’t want to risk running into them again.

REMOTE
REACT
SKY

**********

Ramone pointed at the sky and Justin reacted. He pointed the remote at the drone and quickly armed it to fire at the other drone that had just appeared in their view. There was an explosion as the other drone blew up into a fiery mess dropping quickly to the ground. Their opponents came running over the hill shouting at the unfairness. Nothing in the rules said you could blow up your opponent’s drone they were shouting, but then again, nothing said you couldn’t was the reply. It was a standoff. The two teams just stood there glaring at each other while the one drone continued to burn.

YEAR
NOISE

**********

Karen poked John and said, “Look an ice cream social next week at the high school. Do you want to go?”

John thought about it a bit and then said, “Sure why not. It sounds like fun!”

“We went last year didn’t we,” Karen asked.

“It was a lot of noise, but we did have fun. Maybe we should take Betsy and Carl with us too. Mom’s been bugging me to take them on a double date for weeks now.”

“Well I guess so, but they will have to be home earlier than us so we will need somewhere else to go until curfew, ” Karen said.

Carla stared at the brand new eyeglass case. She had a wonderful surprise when her dad said he had something to brighten her day. She put on the new eyeglasses and her vision became clearer. She could see again.

Weekend Writing Prompt #181 – Histrionics

Weekend Writing Prompt #181 – Histrionics

**********

Pamela dug through her purse for a tissue. She intended to put on her best histrionics for this one. Randall wanted to go to his company dinner, but Pamela just wasn’t in the mood for it. She wanted a nice quiet dinner with just the two of them.

**********48 words**********

Sammi’s Rules:

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Word Prompt

Vault

Challenge

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below).  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.
  • A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc).  If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap.  Remember, this is supposed to be fun!

Teddy

by Tessa Dean

Anita stooped to tie her shoe, knocking her bag over and spilling out the contents for everyone to see. She began to blush as the other kids started laughing. Tears seeped down her face, and a boy she didn’t know closed her bag and helped her up.

“What’s your name,” he asked.

Tearfully she replied,” Anita. Why aren’t you laughing at me like everyone else?”

He unzipped his bag and showed her the contents. He, too, had a small stuffed bear in his bag.

“What’s her name,” he asked.

“Sunshine.”

“Sunshine meet Rambo.” He shyly took her hand in his.

FINAL
CUP
RIBBON

**********

The ribbons on my hat were blowing wildly about. The elderly lady behind me kept hitting me in the head and telling me my ribbons were ruining her view and asking me to remove my hat.

I tried to ignore her as the final lap of the race started. She finally reached over and grabbed my hat off of my head, just as the the winning horse crossed the finish line. I missed seeing my horse win his very first race.

When they placed the winner’s cup in my hands I turned around and was about to hit her with it, but she was lying on the ground clutching her chest. They rushed the EMTs over and eventually she was able to sit up. They placed her on the stretcher and took her away and I prayed all the way to the hospital that I hadn’t killed her by being so rude. I should have removed my hat, but I was so excited that my horse was running his first race. I sternly told myself that I had no reason to be so rude.

I arrived at the hospital and ran inside to see if she was alright. They refused to tell me anything unless I was family so I told them I was her sister. Thank God, she was going to be ok and I slipped out of there before they tried to take me to her. She would probably have another heart attack if she saw me.

CHEST
DRAW
DESK

**********By Tessa Dean**********

As I leaned over my desk to draw a picture for my drawing class, I accidentally banged the medical alert button on my chest setting off the alarm at the company who monitors the button 24 hours a day. I was so engrossed in my drawing it wasn’t until the EMT’s broke down my door to come to my aid, that I realized I had missed the voice asking if I was alright. When you do not answer they assume the worst and send help. Now how do I explain this to my landlord. I just might have to use the button to call for help if decides to beat me to a pulp.
