Saturday Centus time, a themed writing meme. The challenge is to write 100 words to add to the prompt started by Jenny Matlock from off on my tangent.
The writing prompt is in itallics...
"Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning and how forlorn she seemed?" Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought
The minute I said it aloud I knew I shouldn‘t have.
Mrs. Lawson had been understanding about Elizabeth.
Today her shocked expression told me I’d gone too far.
Elizabeth, as usual, sat quiet as my classmates laughed.
She’d reached out her hand to me, when I reached back, they laughed harder.
Headmaster Thompson, dressed in his adult version of Hill Preparatory School for Boys’ uniform, entered our classroom.
Tapping his large ruler against his wide palm….
“NONSENSE!!!” he roared as he pulled out the empty seat next to me, and promptly squashed my poor Elizabeth with his big, flat butt.

Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.

Very original take...one I would NEVER have thought of myself.ReplyDelete
Absolutely great twist on this meme.ReplyDelete
I have now read this meme several times, and I am amazed at your take on it. What a daydream! What WILL you do without poor Elizabeth? Thought provoking for sure.ReplyDelete
Oh no, poor Elizabeth. Very clever. Great Centus.ReplyDelete
I read this over several times trying to figure out whether we were talking really creative class clown, imaginary friend that has stuck around a little longer than most, or the beginnings of serious pathology here.ReplyDelete
There are arguments to be made supporting each one...
Really clever take on the prompt! The last line is priceless. Great job. KathyReplyDelete
Wow. Read it four times. So much there, in so few words. Brilliant.ReplyDelete
Bravo! I loved this! Such a creative take on the prompt. Very well done.ReplyDelete
I think you need to report Headmaster Thompson to the State Board of Education and Child Protective Service! Rulers and "death by butt" are prohibited! ;)ReplyDelete
Oh, you clever, clever girl. This was wonderful. And it totally took me by surprise! You're awesome!ReplyDelete
HILARIOUS! You are very very clever!!!ReplyDelete
Wow! Pretty cool take on the prompt...well done...peace and blessingsReplyDelete
