An inspiring idea from Julia’s Place . It is simple. Write a piece in 100 words based on the prompt she posts every week. So here we go…
… as the line was crossed…
“300 stair steps” I sighed. Not again.
Singing to my bum’s wobble, my thighs’ jiggle and my stomach’s waggle.
100 steps. “Getting closer”
Sweaty vapours are drowning me in toxic fog. Last night’s tikka and garlic bread. I know, I know… X thinks I’m odd but I like it. “Curry on.”
My toes are bleeding.
A glimpse of the yellow line marking the last step. Hope. “Help”
0 steps left
Made it. As the line was crossed, I felt my pocket. The keys. In the car. Have to go back.
Bloody lifts. Always broken.
