AT SATURDAY CENTUS
Really, how old? Congratulations Jenny at "Off on my tangent" blog and all her faithful followers!
Bravo. Jenny is celebrating with her first prompt from so long ago.
But - seriously a 53 word prompt? Any style writing, and pictures if you wish. Oh my how things have changed for the better! ha ha
My centus begins with Jenny's 53 (past) WORD PROMPT to set up my story!
What? Doesn't everyone tie their shoes like this?
My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.
Hopefully no one is lurking behind this castle wall.
Only a fool wouldn't take it. But something else equally impelling cautioned, “No” it’s not yours to keep.
But I don’t want to be logical I argued; with that stubborn part of me that refuses to see it any other way, but the right way.
“I won’t give it up."
Are you absolutely sure?
Go away! You ridiculous conscience, haven’t you heard of finders keepers?
Greedily I snatched the bulging wad while my conscience raged,
brewing up a storm before
turning me to stone and forcing me to tie shoelaces.
I just know you all want to play along too, and view other faithful followers
so go here
