Hesitations

The Academy of Magic sat on rue Saint Paul in Paris; it was a well known place around the world for its vast arrays of cards, tricks, educative books on mentalism, hypnotism and any other type of magic you might be interested in. Or biographies of well known magicians like Houdini or Chung Ling Soo….

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Grind

They grind people as windmills once did wheat and being helpless to hold them accountable makes human rights activists grind their teeth. ©️scolpron2018 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

The Girl who Loved Winter

When Sophie woke up that day, she squealed with glee – she could have woken up the whole house but she didn’t really care. And nobody woke up anyway so… They all slept late during vacation. But who would stay in bed when fun could be had? From her window, Sophie could see that the…

Tapping Stick

The woman moved the stick and like puppets they all moved with it. A foot there, a hand raised over the head. She moved again tapping the rod on the floor and they all lifted a leg, dropping into an arabesque. Puppets moved and placed by the puppeteer. Once posed, they didn’t move until the…

Rescue

The hours before dawn were nibulous and dawn promised to remain just so. Jeremiah could give thanks for that; at least, the fog offered them cover. He knew it would be useful once the ravens felt the intruders. Once the birds sounded the alarm, the thick mist would be their only protection and the knowledge…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Wasted

As they operated, the doctors could regret a life wasted in a stupid accident, but at least the young man’s organs wouldn’t be wasted and woud save many others. ©️scolpron2018 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules:Make a sentence with the word of the week.

Worthy

“Undress.” She startled. It wasn’t what she’d expected. Why? “Elisandra,” He sounded as if he were angry. “I don’t like being kept waiting.” “Yes, your Majesty.” Of course he didn’t. He was the King. She should know better. What an idiot! Still, she turned away from him to untie the dress at the neck. She…

Unfair

Summer died that night. It wasn’t as if they didn’t expect it. Everything pointed towards the end. But everyone hoped against all odds that it wouldn’t happen. After all, how could anyone foresee or accept the death of a 5 year old child? ©scolpron2018 In response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie prompt First Line Friday.

Cruel Beauty

Standing at the edge of the river by the hollow tree, Freya hesitated. It would be easy to give up and retrace her steps back to her house. Nobody would know she’d come. And life would continue as before. Only it wouldn’t.  She reached for the silver coated dagger at her belt; courage. She needed…

Wordle #207 ~Unrequited Love?

Jeremiah rubbed his face, trying to chase the exhaustion away. What had he been thinking? Had he been thinking at all? That must be it; he hadn’t. And by doing so, he feared he might have vitiated the tacit contract he established with Lady Thea. If it were the case, it would… he wasn’t sure…

Who Dares…

Standing at the bridge She hesitates; what awaits On the other side? Change, dreams and death dare us go From one place to another. ©scolpron2018 In response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Sunday prompt

Sleepless Nights

“Go and chase your dreams darling.” Her mother said the day she left the house. Most people would think it a colloquialism; a way for parents to encourage their children to find their own way in a world, which wasn’t always kind on young ones like her. For Philomena it was different; not that her…
