This little piece was inspired by Lily Childs’ Friday Prediction back in January. The rules are simple: you get three random words and you have to include them all in a 100 word story.
The words for this piece were: tunnel, horse and judge. I must have been feeling a tad lazy this particular week as I only managed 50 words.
I hope you like…
Judge me as you will, but I see things that others cannot.
The car hurtling towards them: the drunk asleep behind the wheel.
The train entering the tunnel: never emerging from the other end, the explosion devastating.
The antique rocking horse you’ve bought your daughter: your tears will run forever.
