February Prompt Challenge

Another challenge has come to my attention.
Check this one out!

Thank you Hope Ann.
feb-scene-promptOn horseback and under cover of night, the Messenger had set out with a warning.
Sadly their struggle and determination had all been in vain.

‘You’re too young’, they’d said.
‘You aren’t worthy’.
‘It’s impossible’.
‘They’ll laugh at you!’
‘You can’t be serious!’
‘Why should you go?’
‘It’s not your place.’
‘Don’t be ridiculous!’
‘No-one will believe you’.
All the put downs in the world, except the obvious.

As it turned out, no-one had listened and now it was too late.
Everything and everyone was gone.
Would it have made any difference?

She sank to her knees in the bloodied waters, and cursed her sex.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
