Saturday Centus #29

It's Saturday Centus again - in a nutshell, Jenny Matlock gives us a prompt from either herself or a guest submitter and then we have to write 100 or words less related to the prompt (the prompt doesn't count toward the 100 words)  Then link it up to her blog.  It's open until the following Saturday, so that means you have all week to participate by either reading or writing. http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/search/label/Saturday%20Centus

The prompt is in bold.  




"Pardon me," said Tom T. Urkee as Sheila walked by the bench. "Can I help you?" she said.


"Do you know where I live?'

"Yes, sir" and she gathered up his things.   "I'll take you there."

Mr. Urkee was 90 years old. Gossip in town was that he was not well.

They walked silently until they came to his home about a block away.  "Here, you are". 

"How about some tea?

"That would be nice", she said. 

He was the richest man in town and she was excited to see his beautiful home.

He opened the door and she was amazed by what she saw.
