Betrayal

When she received the invitation, Laura was surprised… Ally hadn’t spoken to her in a couple of months; her latest foray into high end society had brought her back changed and somehow Laura didn’t fit in her life anymore. Who could have known that her mother’s second marriage would influence her this way? She’d insisted…

Regrets and Memories

She looked about the room; it was empty but for the chair, which leaned uselessly against the door frame. Others might wonder how such a magnificent place could have fallen to such a state of decay. Not she. At first she’d felt anger, hatred even; now sorrow, regrets and pointless wishes for another chance dominated….

Worlds in Danger

The three of them had been digging for hours, the world around them dark and humid. It wasn’t good, Danik grumbled. There was something unnatural about being this deep. Pleore knew he was right but they had their orders; whether they liked it or not they must obey. It wasn’t as if they could do…

Costly Mistake

His pupil was gazing outside not focusing at all on the lesson at hand. Leaning over his shoulder, he looked through the window only to notice the boisterous noise of birds frolicking in the branches or foliage of the nearby tree. As he breathed down the young man’s neck, the latter startled. “I’m sorry Master…

Da Vinci Code ~ Dan Brown

So this week I’m reviewing Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code. As mentioned last week, I was supposed to do that then, but the book didn’t arrive before I left on vacation so it got postponed. I read the book in French when it came out way back. It was all the rage at the time…

Real or Unreal

Tessa didn’t understand what happened; she knew sometime ago she had another name, another life. But here… she wasn’t so sure. The worst about it was she didn’t know which was real and which wasn’t. She’d only tried to escape the janitor after a stupid prank and entered a room in the school she’d never…

The Goddess’s Island

Joshua pulled himself out of the water, weary and exhausted. His hands hurt a lot more on the pebbles of the beach that they should. Dragging his tired body on the shores he looked over his shoulder: the ship was gone. It was as it was supposed but still; one didn’t come here without consequences….

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Rail

People didn’t understand why the old lady always railed against them while they leaned against the rails of the old bridge; they thought she was a crazy homeless woman, but she remembered. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

Sur le pont de Nantes

Everybody was talking about the giant party organized by the old bridge that weekend. It was going to be the party of the century and Adele was adamant she would attend. Everyone who was anyone at school would be there and so would she. But when she asked her mother for permission, she refused. The…

The Woman in White ~ Wilkie Collins

So once again I am forced to derive from the course of my reading list. I was supposed to read Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code this week. It was in fact, a perfect book for vacation reading since I’m off and it would have been a welcome break from the last few books I’ve read…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Rehabilitate

Nobody really believed it could be done but they didn’t give up and after an extensive period of time and a huge amount of work, they managed to rehabilitate the building, where now a fantastic team of doctors and nurses help rehabilitate victims of car accidents. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a…

New Beginning

Ellen stopped and looked around her; the place was beautiful, peaceful even. It jarred with her state of mind; she’d been lost for a while now. She wasn’t sure how long; her watch stopped working when she fell. She couldn’t be that far from the camping ground. She’d left early in the morning while the…
