Saturday Centus 8

Today is Saturday Centus which we are given a prompt and then have to write 100 words relating to the prompt.  It's from Jenny Matlock's blog. My prompt is in bold.   We have all week to write it from Saturday to Saturday.  Then post a link on her blog.  Go over and read them there are some fantastic writers over there and creative ways people are going about the prompts each week.  Check it out.  Click here  Saturday Centus


The last couple of weeks I have been writing about the same character named Mary.  I don't know what travails Mary has been through but I'm trying to figure it out.  If you want to catch up go here


"Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning and how forlorn she seemed?" Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought. 

"What??", Johnny said.  " Just thinking out loud, being here reminded me of something that happened in high school" trying to cover up what I really was thinking.   

"Did you ever write that note"? 

From the other side of the car I heard "Look what the cat dragged back", in a chilly tone.

"Why didn't you tell anyone you were coming", ignoring Jimmy.  "I didn't want anyone to know and I'd like to keep it that way". 

"That's fine for now Mary.  We'll leave you by yourself but in time you've got some explaining to do", Jimmy said.   "Thanks, brothers".

I can't wait to see where this is headed. I'm really impressed that you are able to weave such disparate prompts into a continuous story! Kathy

It takes a lot of talent to use the really varied prompts we've been given and STILL make a continuos story. You rock, Viki.

I don't know how you are doing it but you are pulling it off. Can't wait till next week.

This is amazing that you continue to the story no matter where the prompt takes us.

Absolutely fascinating.

Thanks for linking.

And thanks for keeping us hanging each week.

Thanks for the links back to 1&2. My brain couldn't remember where you last left poor Mary. I do love that you keep coming back to tell us about her.
