So, New York Times best selling author, Jennifer Probst challenged her followers to write a short story. It could be about anything but it had to contain only 81 words. I was excited and decided to go for it. Here is what I came up with:
She ran as fast as she could, trying to finally win, but he was too fast. When he passed her up, his tongue poked out. Anger formed as tears in her eyes as she tried to speed up. She never saw the stone in her path. Megan tripped headlong as screams of pain came from her lips. He was there in an instant.
“It’s okay, I’m here,” he cooed and held her.
She knew, as usual, he would make everything alright.
Well there it is! If you would like to take the 81 word challenge, go to Jennifer Probst’s website: http://www.jenniferprobst.com/2014/03/14/the-short-story-and-a-challenge/
