Merry Friday one and all! As always, the Limebird Writers take part in the 100 Word Challenges, set by Julias Place. This week the prompt is a picture prompt (below). If you want to do your own 100 story, then scroll down to the bottom for more information.
This week we have myself and LimebirdNeeks taking part. Apologies for how sombre mine is, it’s just where the prompt took me this week!
The frantic turn in the lock of the car when I drove your mother to hospital.
The click in the door when we brought you home for the first time.
The door to the drawer where we kept your first lost tooth safe for the tooth fairy.
The twist and the pull of your first locker at school, your uniform not quite fitting.
The key handed over for your first car, I waved you away proudly.
The cold hard clunk of the lock as the mortician slid the door shut.
The key for my heart will be buried with you.
She cackled and crowed as
Her blackened heart showed.
“I will kill you this night!”
She screamed to the world of her plight.
Her bony hands kept slapping the ground
Scratching their wounds across each grassy mound,
She had dropped and lost the skeleton key
That would open the flood gates releasing all enmity.
The terrible sacrifices daily made
Failed to prevent the daylights’ fade
That twisted her bones and stole all her sight
Forever cursed to wander the night.
“You’ve lost it, foul beast!”
She said through clenched teeth,
Her hand raked the grass
Searching- finding it, at last!
